Report is complete: N. Ram on The Hindu's revelation on Rafale deal

After The Hindu reported that a Ministry of Defence (MoD) note had raised objections surrounding the proceedings of the Rafale deal, and it created a political uproar, The Hindu Group’s chairman N. Ram stood by the report and said, “The story is complete in itself because we have not dealt with Manohar Parrikar’s role in this & that needs investigation.”

On Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman raising questions on the ethical standards of journalism, Ram said, “don’t need any certificate from Nirmala Sitharaman. Now they are in big trouble&trying to cover up. My only advice to her would be, ‘You are not involved in the transaction, why you take upon yourself the burden of justifying the indefensible?'
