The government is giving itself a clean chit. The CAG report has been written by the government. The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will reject this report: Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma has said reacting to the CAG report on Rafale

The much awaited CAG report on Rafale tabled in Rajya Sabha is neither complete nor fully correct in the eyes of public. Why constitutional bodies are under stress not been able to work with full honesty in the BJP government. Country is worried.— Mayawati (@Mayawati) February 13, 2019

One of the first reactions from the Congress on the CAG report:
Former union minister and Congress leader Manish Tewari has told CNN-News18: I have not read the report but from what I have gathered, it is a very strange report. The CAG performs three kinds of audit. Perhaps this is the first report that has not gone into the pricing aspect. This report is not worth paper it is printed on.
