Opposition MPs led by UPA chairperson, Sonia Gandhi, launched a protest against the BJP-led NDA government in front of Mahatma Gandhi's statute in Parliament complex on the last day of the Monsoon Session demanding answers on the alleged Rafale scam.
Opposition MPs, including Raj Babbar, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma, Ambika Soni, CPI's D Raja, AAP MP Sushil Gupta among others held protest outside Parliament, holding placards and raising slogans demanding a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) probe into the issue.
Congress members on Thursday had created uproarious scenes in the Lok Sabha demanding a probe into the Rafale deal by a JPC, forcing an adjournment of the proceedings. They were heard demanding a JPC probe into the deal and a reply from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
As the government prepares to table the much-debated Triple Talaq Bill in the Rajya Sabha on Friday, Gandhi, when asked about the issue, told reporters, "Our party's position is absolutely clear on this, I will not say anything further on this."
