GOBBLE D. Gook, like countless others, read with great interest the reported arguments in the Review Petitions relating to the Rafale aircrafts purchase.
It seems that the Apex Court was misled because someone in the higher echelons of Government, being very concerned with economy and economics, ended up being economical with the truth, while presenting its case to the Hon’ble Court.
Now, the Defence Ministry finds itself on the defensive about those misleading disclosures.
And that is because a missile called ‘Truth’ was allegedly stolen and launched from the Ministry, only to land in the lap of a Newspaper which held it high for everyone to see!
The famous ‘Watchman of Truth’ cannot of course be blamed for this mess, nor can it be said that he was caught napping.
