Opposition party leaders on Wednesday sharpened their attack on the government, hours after the Supreme Court rejected the Centre's objections on the admissibility of "leaked documents" in the Rafale case.

Reacting to the order of the apex court, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati criticised the Modi-led government for "hiding the misdemeanor".

Mayawati tweeted: "PM Modi must apologise to the people of the country and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman must resign from the post."

General secretary of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) Sitaram Yechury also echoed similar sentiments.

"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, and then stall any hearing in Supreme Court," Yechury tweeted.

Hitting out at the incumbent government for "falsely" claiming that they have a "clean chit" in the matter, Yechury said that the proof has come tumbling out, adding that Modi-led BJP government is the most "corrupt" and "compromised" government which needs to be thrown out.

Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, said that PM Modi has "cheated the Armed Forces". "To hide his misdeeds, he fooled the Supreme Court," he added.

"PM Modi kept saying everywhere that his party has been given a clean chit in the Rafale case. Supreme Court order today has proved that all he has done is 'lie' to the people of the country," said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief in a tweet. (ANI)
