Delhi BJP leaders, workers stage protest against Rahul Gandhi near Cong HQ; detained
Leaders and workers of the BJP's Delhi unit, along with its president Manoj Tiwari, were detained near the Congress headquarters Wednesday for protesting against Rahul Gandhi, who they said was spreading "lies" on the Rafale deal.
The protesters had assembled at the Vigyan Bhawan here and raised slogans against the Congress and its president, who has been instrumental in mounting a scathing attack on the Modi government over an alleged "scam" in the deal for the French fighter jets.
"Even after the dismissal of petitions challenging the Rafale deal by the Supreme Court, Congress president Rahul Gandhi continues his propaganda, not only insulting the prime minister but also demoralising the defence forces of the country," the Delhi BJP chief said.
