National interest can be ignored for sake of ‘chowkidar’: Mayawati targets Modi


New Delhi, Feb 11: On the day Priyanka Gandhi Vadra made her first public appearance after her appointment as AICC general secretary for eastern Uttar Pradesh, BSP chief Mayawati slammed Narendra Modi government over the Rafale deal for the first time.

In a series of tweets, the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister wrote "Government waived anti-corruption clause in Rafale deal, is the latest detail revelation by The Hindu newspaper today. Corruption & corrupt defence deal, No problem! Chowkidar is important for the BJP/RSS, not his honesty? (sic)," she tweeted from her new handle on Monday morning.
