  • The IAF Chief while addressing his commanders emphasised on the need for enhanced joint training with the army and navy for ensuring better jointmanship. The biannual IAF Commanders Conference, which began on Monday will also discuss anti-drone operations, countering asymmetric warfare and strengthening the IAF’s precision targeting, cyber and information warfare capability.

    Amid "Jai Shree Ram" slogans, he said, "A grand Ram temple will be built in Ayodhya and no power in the world can stop that from happening. The path for construction of the temple has been cleared by the Supreme Court."

    "Three Rafale fighter aircraft have been handed over to the Indian Air Force (IAF) till date which are being used for training of IAF pilots and technicians in France," Minister of State for Defence Shripad Naik said in reply to a question in Lok Sabha.

    The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected pleas for a review of its December 2018 verdict in which it had said there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the controversial deal.

    The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed pleas seeking a review of its December order against investigating the Rafale deal, insisting it was “satisfied” with the material produced by the government to support the pricing of the fighter jets.

    The court struck down pleas that had sought re-examination of the December 14, saying it lacked merit.

    Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) general secretary Bhupender Yadav told reporters here that the Congress and Gandhi were "exposed" by the apex court's verdict and they should now tender an apology.

    Justice Joseph said dismissal of review petitions would not preclude the CBI from taking action as per law on the complaint disclosing commission of alleged cognizable offences, which was lodged with it on October 4, 2018, by former BJP leaders Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie and advocate Prashant Bhushan.

    SC today dismissed the review petitions against its verdict in the Rafale deal on grounds that they lacked merit, reiterating its clean chit to the Modi government in the fighter jet agreement. It also closed the contempt plea against Rahul Gandhi for wrongly attributing to the apex court his "chowkidar chor hai" remark in the Rafale case.

    On May 10, the apex court had reserved the decision on the pleas, including one filed by former Union ministers Yashwant Sinha, Arun Shourie, and activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan, seeking a re-examination of its findings that there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets.
