He stated the Modi government handed over the offset contract of Rafale deal to Anil Ambani’s firm Reliance Defence in place of HAL benefitting the former Rs 20,000 to 30,000 crore. Nageshwar has stated that the NDA government has been saying that Dassault Aviation chose Reliance as its partner. However, the row erupted when former French President Francois Hollande said the Modi government had suggested the name of Reliance Defence, he added.
