CWC member and senior Congress leader Tariq Hameed Karra, who led the peaceful march, asked the gathering of party leaders and workers to move towards Raj Bhawan to lodge “a strong protest against the siege of AICC Delhi HQ and ED Summons to Rahul Gandhi and against the politics of vendetta unleashed by BJP.”
While moving towards Raj Bhawan from Party Office Police entered the premises and closed the main gate, but the workers broke open the gate and marched towards Raj Bhawan. In the meantime, additional forces were called and the Congress march was stopped halfway by the police.
“BJP Govt is afraid of Congress party, as the Party is performing the role of constructive & principal-based opposition in the interest of the masses, there is no question of compromise on that despite the challenges and fabrication of baseless cases against the leadership,” a CWC Member added.
