Congress protest LIVE updates: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra staged a sit-in protest outside the AICC headquarters as part of the party's nationwide stir against price rise, the GST hike on essential items and unemployment. Dressed in black, as several other party members did to register their protest against the government, Priyanka Gandhi crossed the police barricades put up on the road outside the party headquarters and squatted on the road, with police personnel asking her to move from there as section 144 of CrPC is in force in the entire area of New Delhi district except Jantar Mantar. The Congress general secretary was subsequently put in a vehicle forcibly by police and taken away.
