The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) held a nationwide protest on November 16 demanding for an apology from the Congress party leader, Rahul Gandhi over his remarks on the Rafale issue after the Supreme Court gave a clean chit to the BJP government in this matter.
The protest was called nationwide where the BJP party workers were seen protesting in several cities of the nation. In Mumbai, the BJP workers protested outside the All India Congress Committee (AICC) where scores of protesters were seen on the streets raising slogans against the Congress leader. The BJP workers also held a massive protest outside the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) office demanding for an apology from the Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal after the Supreme Court has dismissed the Rafale review petitions.
In Patna, demonstrations were held at ‘Kargil chowk’ and in front of all the district headquarters of the city. The protestors tore and defaced posters of Rahul Gandhi seeking for an apology.
On November 14, the Supreme Court dismissed the petitions for review over its December 2018 judgment seeking for a court-monitored criminal probe into the Rafale fighter jet deal between the Indian government and France’s Dassault Aviation.
Note: During the Lok Sabha election, held earlier this year, the then Congress president Rahul Gandhi had carried out a nationwide campaign against the deal to buy 36 Rafale fighter aircraft from France. The grand old party with other opposition parties had also disrupted proceedings of both the Houses of Parliament.
