The controversy has been on the boil over the last few months. The latest development in the case is the row over the Supreme Court's verdict after the Centre filed an application before the apex court seeking a correction in its judgment on the deal.

On November 15, the Centre filed an application before the apex court seeking a correction in the order, specifically the paragraph that mentioned the pricing details.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Member of Parliament (MP) Manoj Jha, has also announced on Sunday that he is moving a privilege motion in the Rajya Sabha against Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi for allowing the Centre to present factually wrong affidavit before the Supreme Court in the Rafale deal case.
