Citing past precedents, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday reiterated the Government's stand that pricing details of Rafale or any Defence transactions can not be made public.
The FM's reply to a general debate on the Budget saw heated exchanges in the Lok Sabha between the treasury benches and the Opposition, particularly the Congress, over the Rafale deal.
According to Surjewala, while Sitharaman refused to disclose the price on grounds of a "secrecy agreement", Union finance minister Arun Jaitley did not do so for reasons of "national security".

The Congress president had yesterday said, "Q-Why did the Raksha Mantri change her stance from: I will reveal the price of the RAFALE planes in Nov 2017 to the price is a state secret in Feb 2018. These security pacts are inherent part of these defence contracts", he said. The Congress is compromising national security by asking for details which should not be made public, by which I mean known to the enemy.
The chaos forced Jaitley to abruptly end his speech and prompted Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to declare that speech of Jaitley will be considered as tabled.
Now in another development, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has responded back to government's charge at the then Congress-led regime when it said that even they did not reveal details of defence deals.
Continued with his target on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Congress president Rahul Gandhi once again targeted him over the Rafale aircraft deal, twisting his name to indicate that he spoke lie.

In his speech in the Lok Sabha, Jaitley said it was the Narendra Modi government that took the hard decisions of demonetisation, the goods and services tax (GST) and the imposition of the LTCG tax. Surjewala asked. "Why are the two ministers of the government speaking in two different voices?"
Jaitley also said that the Reserve Bank of India and banks are taking all measures to ensure availability of coins to public across the counters and through "coin melas".
Mr Gandhi issued a notice under rule 357 of conduct of business for a discussion on the Rafale deal, but the discussion could not take place.
Jaitley's reply was cut short by protests by Congress MPs and other opposition members, and the House was adjourned. "There can be only one answer and it is that there is something fishy about this", he said.
