Congress leader Randeep Surjewala tweeted, “Modiji, you can run and lie as much as you want, But sooner or later the truth comes out. The skeletons in #RafaleScam are tumbling out one by one. And now there is ‘no official secrets act’ to hide behind.”

“SC has upheld a time honoured legal principle; A rattled Modiji had threatened to invoke Official Secrets Act against independent Journalists for exposing his corruption on #Rafale. Don’t worry Modiji, an investigation is going to take place now, whether you like it or not,” the Congress leader added.

Attacking the Prime Minister, CPI-M general secretary Sitaram Yechury said in a tweet, “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, then stall any hearing in Supreme Court. Important that culprits are booked.”

“Modi and his minions have falsely claimed that they have a “clean chit” in the Rafale scam. But the proofs have come tumbling out one after another. It has been the most corrupt and most compromised govt in India’s history. Now is the time to throw it out.”

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal also hit out at the Prime Minister over SC’s observations on Rafale.

What will Supreme Court now do?

The top court will now not only consider the classified documents as evidence but also review its previous verdict that had given clean chit to the Narendra Modi government in the Rafale deal (buying of 36 fighter jets by India from France).

The Centre had earlier told the Supreme Court that the papers, which were accessed by The Hindu, were stolen from the Defence Ministry.
