Govt 'suppressing dissent' in response to issues like Rafale, depreciating rupee: Chidambaram

NEW DELHI: Senior Congress chief P Chidambaram Friday mentioned the government's reaction to issues such because the Rafale deal fees, falling markets and the depreciating rupee is to "suppress dissent".


The opposition led through the Congress has been accusing the government of reaping rewards Anil Ambani's Reliance Defence Ltd. from the Rafale deal. The govt and Reliance Defence have dismissed all the allegations as false.


"As Rafale deal unravels, markets fall, the rupee depreciates and interest rates rise, the response of the government is to suppress dissent," Chidambaram tweeted.


"ED blocks Greenpeace accounts; IT searches Raghav Bahl's offices; BJP MPs block Estimates Committee's report and more," he mentioned, referring to the Enforcement Directorate freezing over a dozen financial institution accounts of environmental NGO Greenpeace and the Income Tax Department searching media baron Raghav Bahl's home and administrative center on Thursday.
