In the eighties and nineties, there was a ruckus on the news of the brokerage in the Bofors cannon deal in the country. Just like today, the Rafael Deal Congress has consistently surrounded the NDA government on allegations of corruption. On August 16, 1987, a Swedish newspaper disclosed this sensational news by quoting a whistle blower that in a cannon deal with India, the Bofors company bribed people in many countries with India and Sweden. After the news broke, there was a ruckus all over the country. Opposition began to surround the government of Rajiv Gandhi. In this case, the demand for a probe into JPC constituted in parliament started arising. In the same way, the Congress is demanding the JPC on Rafael Deal today.



On April 20, 1987, the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi stood in the middle of a dispute over the brokerage reports in the Bofors gun deal. While addressing the MPs of the Lok Sabha, they said, "You show me any proof that no middleman has been involved in this deal or someone has been bribed, we will take action and we will see that no one, no matter how high Why not post it, can not escape. '



Even after this, there is no continuing process for enforcing the allegations of taking the brokerage in the Bofors cannon deal. Finally, in August 1987, the JPC was formed to investigate the charges of the brokerage. Next year, the JPC submitted its investigation report and gave a clean chit to the Congress government in the Bofors gun deal. In his report, the JPC wrote that there was no disturbance in the deal of 1700 crore for the purchase of 400 guns of 155 mm. Here a question arises that the JPC was investigated in the Bofors gun deal, but why is it that the Modi government is escaping JPC's investigation on Rafael Deal?

    Arun Jaitley's response to JPC probe on Rafael Deal in Lok Sabha




The answer to this question was given by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was answering questions asked on Rafael Deal in a series of ways. Addressing the Parliament in the last part of his reply, he said that now I tell you why the Joint Parliamentary Committee i.e. JPC can not be constituted in this matter.

He said, "What is the need of the JPC after the Supreme Court verdict? JPC is formed on the question of policy. Questions are being raised about the investigation in the Raphael deal, on which the Supreme Court has already heard the verdict. MPs in JPC express their opinions more than the evidence of their party line. Therefore, the results of the JPC can not be trusted. '

Arun Jaitley, while presenting the example of the JPC formed in the case of Bofors gun dealer brokerage, said that the JPC was headed by B Shankaranand to investigate Bofors. It has been proved that corruption in Bofors had happened, but the JPC had given a clean chit to the Congress government in Bofors. Jaitley said that people trapped in the Bofors scam are demanding JPC so that the allegations of corruption which have not been found in the Modi government so far have been imposed on the government through the JPC. That is why the government rejects the demand of the JPC.




After the reply of Arun Jaitley, it is important to know that after the investigation of allegations of brokering in the Bofors gun deal, how the JPC was formed, how the JPC had investigated these allegations and to reach the conclusions, the JPC Which base was chosen? On the official website of the Lok Sabha, the JPC's report is set up in the Bofors cannon deal.


After all, what happened in the JPC investigation on the Bofors cannon deal?

After all, what happened in the JPC investigation on the Bofors cannon deal?



In the Rajiv Gandhi government, Defense Minister KC Pant proposed the JPC on August 6, 1987, in the Lok Sabha. A week later on August 12, the Rajya Sabha also stamped it. After which the government formed JPC in the chairmanship of Congress leader B Shankaranand. In this committee, there were 30 MPs from the Lok Sabha and 10 in the Rajya Sabha together. The committee completed its investigation in 50 meetings and submitted its investigation report on April 26, 1988.

JPC has given its results in 15 points in its 242-page report.





The most important point of the JPC report was:



-Committee wrote in its report that we have full faith that the selection of the Bofors gun is done in a completely clean and transparent manner. There was no disturbance in the technical examination of the cannon and the entire process was followed.

-Bofors cannon is fully capable and efficient in technical and operational parameters.

-Contacting the deal, the firm competed between the suppliers and chose the company. Bofors did not find the role of a middleman while fixing the second term of the price and contracts in the business agreement. As a result, the government managed to deal with the lowest prices and best financial terms.

-Bofors Cannon Contract has been fully guaranteed for financial and performance. Bank guarantee has also been provided through Warranty bond.

-In the manner in which media was promoted, the deal was not given for bribe or brokerage at any level from selection to selection.

-On the basis of evidence, the committee has found in its investigation that the selection of the Bofors gun has been done entirely on merit.


-Bofors expressed the inability to give information about the three companies given as a win-off cost. Bofors said that giving information about this would be a violation of the business agreement with these companies. On the suggestion of the Attorney General, the committee found the statements of Bofors given in this regard to be satisfactory.

-Boofors who gave money in the name of the wind-up cost, no one came forward to provide information with the evidence about it. According to the legal advice given to the committee, Bofors is not obliged to provide information about this. There was no information on the beneficiary in this. It can not even be ascertained that there was an Indian or foreigner who had the advantage.


-Only on the basis of suspicion that there is no middleman in this deal, in this case, no inquiry or contract is required to cancel. That is the opinion of the attorney general of the country too.


With these results, the JPC, formed on the Bofors probe, acquitted the Congress government to all allegations of brokerage. There was a relief for the Congress government. However, the opposition rejected the JPC report. Most MPs involved in the JPC were from the Congress. Raising the same question, the opposition refused to accept the results of this inquiry report in Parliament. Referring to this, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday.



Congress government was acquitted in JPC investigation But the Congress government had become infamous for the brokerage in the cannon deal. The result was that he suffered in the next Lok Sabha elections. The Congress could not get a majority and the opposition formed a coalition government. Bofors scandal stampede to Congress


There is a fact that until now, JPC has been formed on 6 different cases. And every time the government did not return to the next election which was JPC. This is the fear for the Modi government. The Rafael Deal is yet to fill the charge of the opposition. Forming a JPC, in this case, will provide greater flexibility to the allegations. So the Modi government is escaping JPC.
