Rafale deal updates: BJP is compromising national security by protecting ‘corrupt chowkidar’, says Mayawati


Rafale deal updates: BSP president Mayawati on Monday also slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Rafale deal. She said honesty, national interest, and national security is being compromised and ignored for the sake of the "chowkidar".

"Corruption and corrupt defence deal, no problem! Chowkidar is important for the BJP/RSS, not his honesty?" she asked on Twitter, referring to the prime minister as a watchman, an epithet often used by Congress chief Rahul Gandhi to describe Modi.
