Up in arms: NSUI activists staging a protest near the District Collectorate in Kurnool on Monday.

Demanding resignation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi over alleged irregularities in ‘Rafale deal’, National Students Union of India (NSUI) activists staged a demonstration at District Collectorate complex in Kurnool here on Monday morning.

The protesters led by NSUI national secretary Nagesh Kariyappa, State and Kurnool district in-charges Naga Madhu Yadav and Harshavardhan Reddy respectively, took out a rally, raising slogans against the Union government, and staged a protest at the Collectorate.

Speaking to the media, they questioned the alleged irregularities linked to the deal and remarked that the BJP’s stance in weeding out corruption, from the country, was completely false. “Since, they came into power, corruption has increased manifold with the major blow to the economy being demonetisation. Through that, the NDA government has managed to convert black money into white and have been involved in several acts of corruption,” they alleged. With respect to the ‘Rafale deal,’ the protesters demanded a detailed inquiry by a sitting judge of the Supreme Court. The police officials took the protesters into custody and shifted them from the venue.
