Former finance minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Friday hit out at the government for suppressing dissent in the face of unfolding evidence of corruption in the Rafale deal.

“As Rafale deal unravels, markets fall, the rupee depreciates and interest rates rise, the response of the government is to suppress dissent,” the veteran Congress man said on Twitter.

The Congress leader mentioned the ED blocking Greenpeace accounts, I-T searching media leader Raghav Bahl’s offices and BJP MPs blocking the Estimates Committee’s report and more.

The ED on Thursday had attached assets worth Rs 54 crore of the ex-minister’s son, Karti Chidambaram, in the INX Media case.
