While addressing a press conference at the Congress Bhavan, M.P. Susmita Dev said, "the incumbent NDA government has bought the fighter jets from France at "a much higher" price than the one negotiated by the erstwhile Congress-led UPA government. The government cannot hide corruption under the guise of the secret clause. There is no transparency in the deal as it has been done without taking anybody into confidence. There is a lot of room for suspicion."
