1/ BJP’s connection with rape is nothing new. Let us take a look at the incidents where the leaders of #BalatkarJantaParty involved in rape cases. This compilation is based on the published articles in national dailies. # Thread
2/ A local BJP leader and two of his aides booked for allegedly gang raping a Dalit woman after promising her help in getting a BPL card in Madhya Pradesh’s Morena on March 2017
3/ Jayesh Patel (66), a Gujarat BJP leader and founder-president of the privately owned Parul University in Vadodara, raped a 22-year-old nursing student of the university.
4/ A 24-year-old woman was gang-raped allegedly by 10 people including four local BJP leaders in Gujarat’s Kutch district. The accused forced the victim in to prostitution through blackmailing because they had filmed the rape
5/ A BJP Mahila Morcha worker filed a FIR against Delhi BJP leader Vijay Jolly of raping her
6/ A BJP Corporator fm Mumbai has been booked for allegedly raping and having unnatural sex with a 44-year-old married woman.
7/ A tribal girl in a Madhya Pradesh district was allegedly gang raped by a local BJP leader and his five accomplices for refusing to withdraw a molestation case filed against him by her
8/ A local BJP leader in Gujarat was arrested for allegedly molesting a 13 year old girl on board a Goa Ahmedabad flight of IndiGo airlines.
9/ In November 2011, the accused BJP leader allegedly called a woman to a hotel in Gandhinagar, saying that a government meeting related to NGOs was going on there. When the women went there, he allegedly raped her.
10/ Uttarakhand Police booked Bharatiya Janata Party leader Harak Singh Rawat on charges of rape and harassment was lodged against him. An investigation of a molestation case was already going on against this person.
11/ A Delhi court has put on trial a BJP MLA Umesh Agarwal from Haryana and two others for allegedly raping a woman in a hotel
12/ A Madhya Pradesh BJP leader and five others, including a woman, were arrested for alleged sexual assault and trafficking of a minor girl from Assam.
13/ A minister in Modi govt - Nihal Chand - summoned by a court in rape case
14/ D N Jeevaraj, MLA from Chikmagalur in Karnataka was booked on charges of kidnapping, raping and intimidating a woman
15/ A woman filed a rape case against BJP leader and former health minister of Chhattisgarh Krishnamurti Bandhi. She was found burnt in mysterious circumstances inside the premises of Bandhi's aide and former judge RR Bhardwaj.
16/ BJP leader Pramod Gupta was sentenced to life imprisonment by a local court in a five-year-old rape case. Gupta and his accomplice Kumar were both associated with the Pradesh BJP at the time of the incident.
17/ A BJP minister fm MP got arrested for sexually abusing his domestic help
18/ BJP leader and Maharashtra spokesperson for BJP (then) Madhu Chavan was arrested for raping a woman in the pretext of marrying her
19/ When BJP was in power in Karnataka, their former civil supplies minister H Halappa was arrested on a rape complaint filed by his Friend’s wife
20/ Bharatiya Janata Party leader Ashok Taneja from Punjab was arrested after his daughter complained to police of him repeatedly raping her over the years
21/ It is not surprising when their supreme leader himself ordered the snooping of a woman using the state machinery. Neither BJP nor its top leaders contested this in a court of law if they were clean.
22/ We can dig out enough such cases of #BalatkarJantaParty. Their leaders like Ms Lekhi will keep arguing to protect the rapists and others like Smriti Irani will run away from questions of the media fearing their personal growth in the party.
23/ But these things will not cover up the truth. #Kathua and #Unnao were not political issues till BJP RSS politicised and gave religious colours to it. Both were clear cases of BJP govts misusing its position in power to protect the culprits.
24/ Such an attitude of BJP has forced a common man like me to believe BJP is #BalatkarJantaParty and it will not change till the party RSS change their attitude towards women and stop treating them as weaker sex.
25/ Swami Chinmayananda - former minister and BJP leader was booked for raping a woman. Now Ajay Bisht govt decided to withdraw tue case without any trial.
26/ Mumbai Police have booked BJP leader Daya Gaikwad for allegedly raping a 27-year-old woman from Thane.
27/ BJP leader Rajendra Namdev was arrested for confining an acid attack survivor and sexually assaulting her in MP.

1/As Modi govt claims, Negotiations with Rafale didn’t fail, but differences ironed out and Dassault and HAL signed a work share agreement.
As everyone claim, Dassault Reliance JV was not formed in 2016, but immediately after Modi’s announcement
My piece
2/ Modi’s Rafale Deal Time Line:
March 10, 2015 - Dassault Annual Results 2014 released. It says “the continuation of exclusive negotiations with the Indian authorities and Indian industrial partners to finalize the contract for the sale / licensing of 126 RAFALE,”
3/ March 11, 2015
CEO Eric Trappier says Dassault and HAL signed a work share agreement. “This is the first time Dassault agrees to be a co-contractor.”

1/ Modi Govt, cabinet ministers, BJP spokespersons and party supporters, fake defence experts and spineless journalists are all speaking in the same voice and parroting the govt stand on #Rafale36. But Modi’s #Rafale36 deal is not just about the price escalation. #Thread
2/ Neither BJP Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman nor blog minister Arun Jaitley never answered anything about the following questions: When did IAF requested for 36 Rafale? To whom did IAF submit the request? Which committee held the meeting?
3/ Who chaired the meeting? When did the approval for 36 aircrafts given? Who approved it? Why the then Defence Minister Parrikar was not aware of the deal? Why did Parrikar say it was the decision of PM soon after Modi’s announcement from Paris?

1/ When Modi ordered #Rafale36 off the shelf from France, Modi himself and his ministers, other BJP leaders along with Modi bhakt Media reporters kept repeating and keep repeating one sentence- “it is an emergency purchase for IAF”
2/ If it was an emergency requirement, it would have been ordered under the Fast Track Procedure of DPP. If so, when did IAF submit the proposal for 36 Rafale and did the then Chief of Air Staff approve it? When was the approval given by DAC and did Mr Parrikar know about this?
3/ If IAF submitted its proposal and DAC approved it, when did the meeting take place? When was this proposal processed?
If not, who gave the he number 36 to Modi? How could Modi take such a unilateral call in violation of all the set procedures? And why he did so?

1/ No Mrs @nsitharaman. This is another false statement from you.
The first question is, who gave the permission to PM to take a unilateral decision and why didn’t he wait for a CCS approval before his announcement?
Why did the then Defence Minister was not consulted?
2/ Another question you never answered is why did Modi govt agreed on Geneva as the seat of arbitration? And why did Modi govt agreed to pay in advance before the delivery?
How did such big a deal went through without the mandatory bank guarantee from Dassault?
3/ If Dassault falters on delivery schedule, in absence of a bank guarentee, what is the security Modi govt got from France?
Why did law Ministry’s red flag on the contract was sidelined? Who advised for that? And for whom?

1/ Why Modi government’s #Rafale36 is not a transparent deal and why the cost of around ₹1670 crore per Rafale is too exorbitant a price? Why Opposition is calling it #RafaleScam?
We have clear answers available in public domain given by The then DM Parrikar. #RafaleScamThread
2/ A Ministry Of Defence press release dated 28 August 2007 states the then government’s estimated cost for the MMRCA deal with total 126 aircrafts were ₹42,000 i.e 333.33 cr per aircraft.
3/ Immediately after Modi Announced the #Rafale36 deal from France, in an interview to a News Channel, the then DM Manohar Parrikar told “if we go for 126 Rafale, the total cost would have been 90,000 crore ‘inclusive of everything’”.

1) Let us revisit the 17 days starting from March 25, 2015 to April 10, 2015 to understand how the Rafale deal changed altogether. #thread
