BJP leader and Union minister Gajendra Shekhawat alleged that the UPA government had called off the multi-billion USD deal after a private company linked to Vadra was not chosen as a broker.

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley discredited former French President Francois Hollande's revelation on the choice of an offset partner.
Junior foreign minister Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, fearing damage to Indo-French ties, said that the ex-French President's remarks do not help anyone and above all do not help France.
Jaitley, hinting at a possible ‘collusion’, raised questions as to how Hollande’s comments casting aspersion on the Indian government came just two days after a tweet by Rahul.

The Defence Ministry said "unnecessary controversies" are being sought to be created following media reports regarding a statement purportedly made by Hollande.
According to Singh, a joint statement issued by PM Modi and Hollande in 2015 has come to the fore now and it showed that there was no change in the technology of the aircraft in the new deal.
