The Maharashtra and Mumbai Congress units took out a protest march in Mumbai on Thursday, September 27, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman over the Rafale deal.

Congress activists pushed a life-size model of the Rafale jet, carried banners and placards and shouted anti-Modi and anti-Sitharaman slogans as they marched from Mahalaxmi Race Court to the iconic August Kranti Maidan in south Mumbai.

Mallikarjun Kharge, Ashok Chavan and Sanjay Nirupam led the protest march.

"This huge protest is to create public awareness about the Rafale scam and expose the deep-rooted corruption that exists in the Modi government," said Kharge.

He reiterated the Congress demand for a CAG and JPC probe into the deal and later led a delegation of senior leaders to Governor CV Rao and submitted a memorandum on their demands.
