Jamshedpur, June 17: Continuing its relentless attacks on the Narendra Modi government, Congress protested the ED’s attitude while questioning the party’s national leader Rahul Gandhi on the National Herald issue. The East Singhbhum District Congress Committee staged a protest outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office on Friday June 17 against the ED’s attitude towards the party’s national leader Rahul Gandhi and the alleged dirty party politics being played by the BJP. In the National Herald case, Congress constantly attacks the Narendra Modi government at the Center for the action of ED interrogation of National Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
The District Congress staged a peaceful protest at the District Collectorate on Friday accusing Narendra Modi and Amit Shah of unnecessarily targeting Rahul Gandhi. Congress District Chairman Bijay Khan warned, “Congress will take to the streets and oppose the dirty policies pursued by the BJP. Congress workers prepared to go to jail. Now is the time to save Indians from the vicious grip of the BJP. A plan has been hatched to forcibly harass our national leader Rahul Gandhi through the doctored negative attitude of ED.
Senior Congress official Sardar Baldev Singh said the central government was trying to tarnish the reputations of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and national party leader Rahul Gandhi. He said: “The harassment scheme adopted by the central government against our national leaders is an attempt to cover up its failure by abusing central agencies like the ED.” Ansar Khan said the Congress party, under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, had raised the voice of the people strongly against the failure of the central government and would continue to do so. He said there was nothing Congress couldn’t fight. If any person or party attempted to undermine the pillars of democracy, Congress would rise to destroy those motivations.
Youth Congress State Secretary General Rakesh Sahu said, “The Modi government is targeting Rahul Gandhi to divert people’s attention from problems like unemployment and inflation. He cares a lot about the principles of the Constitution and under the current central government, democracy is in grave danger. The entire nation is watching what the misdeeds of the BJP government are. The compatriots are biding their time and when the time comes, they will give an appropriate response to the Modi government.
