Opposition parties have been attacking Modi over the Rafael deal. Along with Congress, other opposition parties also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Chairperson of Bahujan Samaj Party and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati tweeted that Rafael's papers were stolen from the Defense Ministry, very strange and irresponsible chowkidari.
She tweeted that "The Center has said in the Supreme Court that the paper of the Raphael aircraft deal was stolen from the Ministry of Defense."
"Satyanash, very strange and irresponsible chowkidari? Is national security & interest in the safe hands? Think long & loud," she tweeted.
It is noteworthy that Mayawati has joined Twitter some days ago and she constantly tweeted on every issue.
केन्द्र ने सुप्रीम कोर्ट में अत्यन्त ही चैंकाने वाला रहस्योदघाटन किया कि राफेल विमान खरीद से सम्बंधित अहम व गुप्त दस्तावेज रक्षा मंत्रालय से चोरी हो गये हैं। सत्यानाश! मोदी सरकार द्वारा देश की यह कैसी चौकीदारी? क्या देशहित व देश की सुरक्षा वाकई मजबूत हांथों में है? सोचना पड़ेगा।— Mayawati (@Mayawati) March 7, 2019
Before Mayawati, Congress President Rahul Gandhi also held a press conference on Thursday and directly attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Rahul has alleged that the papers stolen from the Ministry of Defense, and it is clearly written on the papers that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was compromising on Rafael Deal. He said PM and the PMO is responsible for it so action should be taken on them.
