BJP protests outside Aam Aadmi Party office over Rafale claims
New Delhi : The Bharatiya Janata Party Delhi unit leaders were seen protesting outside the Aam Aadmi Party office against the baseless allegations levelled by the party in the Rafale Jet deal, two days after the Supreme Court rejected pleas to review its judgment giving clean chit to the Modi government.
Led by Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari, the saffron party demanded an apology from the AAP and claimed that they are trying to malign the image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
On Friday, the Delhi BJP had staged a protest outside the Congress headquarters demanding an apology on the same issue.
According to a statement released by the BJP leaders, the protest is being carried out against the "malicious and baseless allegations" of corruption levelled in the Rafale deal.
In February, Delhi Chief Minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal had demanded that an "independent" CBI raid the PMO, seize files and make arrests in connection with the controversial deal.
On Thursday, the Supreme Court rejected pleas for a review of its December 2018 verdict in which it had said that there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the multi-billion-dollar deal.
