Modi Govt finished CBI for Rafale deal probe: Yashwant Sinha

Nagpur: Launching a scathing attack on Central Government, the former Finance Minister and BJP leader Yashwant Sinha said the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has turned the nation into a banana republic. “There is no rule of law. The Prime Minister or Cabinet cannot remove CBI chief. The Government has finished the Central Bureau of Investigation, premier investigation agency in the country,” Sinha said.

“There is anarchy in the country. The Modi Government was angry with the CBI Director for probe into the Rafale deal. To settle the score, action was taken against the CBI chief. He has been forcibly sent on leave,” Sinha charged.

The BJP leader was addressing a press conference at Patrakar Bhavan on Wednesday. BJP MP and Bollywood star Shatrughan Sinha and Ashish Deshmukh, who recently quit BJP and joined Congress, were also present at the press meet.
