New Delhi, June 13
The Congress on Monday said the government had clamped an undeclared emergency in Delhi and had arrested many of its leaders beginning Sunday night to prevent leaders from marching to the ED office where Rahul Gandhi will appear on Monday to answer summons in the National Herald money-laundering case.
“The descendants of Godse are again challenging Gandhi. Neither could Godse kill Gandhi nor will Modi ji be able to do that. We will continue to work undeterred for the people. Why is the BJP government so afraid? They’ve arrested our leaders starting last night and issued an undeclared emergency in Delhi. Because Rahul Gandhi asks uncomfortable questions they attack him. We are not afraid,” Congress general secretary Randeep Surjewala said on Monday.
He said party leaders are ready to give arrests and the police can arrest them.
“All that Rahul Gandhi wants is a march to the ED office. What is the problem in that? Is it a crime to march in this city?” asked Surjewala reiterating that there is no money-laundering in the National Herald matter and the loan given to the newspaper was for payment of salaries of journalists and to address other expenses.
“National Herald assets remain with the newspaper and no one has taken those assets as falsely alleged under a malicious case,” Surjewala said.
