Nationalist Congress Party Leader and Member of Parliament Tariq Anwar resigned from both the party and Lok Sabha on Thursday after the party chief Sharad Pawar defended Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Rafale Deal.

Anwar had been Lok Sabha MP from Katihar in Bihar and is considered a close aide of Pawar. He along with former Lok Sabha Speaker P A Sangma had quit the Congress two decades back raking up Sonia Gandhi’s foreign origin issue to form the NCP.

In 1999, Tariq Anwar along with Sharad Pawar and P A Sangma broke away from Congress (I), in protest of a person of foreign origin being appointed as president of Congress party and formed Nationalist Congress Party.

NCP Chief and Former Defence Minister Sharad Pawar while speaking to the media on Thursday said "People do not doubt Prime Minister Modi’s intention in the Rafale Deal".

The Former Defence Minister also said that opposition’s demand to share technical details of the aircraft is baseless and made no sense. However, he added that is no problem in sharing the price of the aircraft.

The statement was widely quoted by BJP leaders, including party president Amit Shah, to highlight Congress’ failure to find wider support on the issue even amongst opposition parties.
