National Herald offices raid: National Herald offices raid: Days after Congress chief Sonia Gandhi was questioned by the probe agency over her role in the National Herald newspaper linked money laundering case, the Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday raided 12 various locations including Delhi, Lucknow and Kolkata office. The ED is scrutinising the accounts of National Herald and its associated companies.

A few days back, Rahul Gandhi was questioned in the same case by the probe agency. While Sonia Gandhi was questioned for 11 hours in 3 days, Rahul Gandhi was quizzed by the ED in this case last month in sessions that clocked over 50 hours over five days.

The Gandhis are understood to have stuck to the party's position that no personal acquisition of assets was made in the Associated Journals Limited (AJL)-Young Indian deal and that the routine affairs were handled by other office bearers, including late Motilal Vora. Bansal and Kharge have been questioned by the ED in the past.

Rahul Gandhi Facebook post

Amid Enforcement Directorate raid on 12 various locations in connections to National Herald case, Rahul Gandhi on Facebook has shared a message for party workers. "Don't consider yourself alone, Congress is your voice, and you are Congress's power. I promise you, we will neither be afraid nor let them scare you...," Rahul wrote.
