Hours after the Supreme Court rejected the centre’s objections on the admissibility of leaked documents in the Rafale case, the opposition party leaders on Wednesday sharpened their attack on the government.

Reacting to the order of the apex court, BSP chief Mayawati criticised the Modi-led government for ‘hiding the misdemeanour’ and said Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman must resign. Whereas, General secretary CPI (M) Sitaram Yechury also echoed similar sentiments.

Taking to Twitter, Mayawati wrote, “PM Modi must apologise to the people of the country and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman must resign from the post.”

While Yechury tweeted, “Modi and his govt have compromised national security for corruption & cronyism in an important defence deal. They tried to evade accountability, denied a JPC, hid price from CAG, tried to first mislead, and then stall any hearing in Supreme Court.”

On the other hand, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that PM Modi has cheated the Armed Forces. “To hide his misdeeds, he fooled the Supreme Court,” he added.

The AAP chief also tweeted, “PM Modi kept saying everywhere that his party has been given a clean chit in the Rafale case. Supreme Court order today has proved that all he has done is ‘lie’ to the people of the country.”
