He arrived at the agency's office at 11:05 am on Tuesday, accompanied by his sister and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.  His questioning began at 11:30 am after the completion of some legal formalities. He left the ED office for lunch and rejoined the probe after a break of one hour.

His statement was recorded in multiple sessions under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and after Tuesday's exercise, he has clocked close to 21 hours of questioning by the ED investigators. Gandhi, an MP from Wayanad in Kerala, spent over 10 hours at the federal agency's office on Monday, where he was similarly questioned and his statement was recorded.

    Surjewala addresses press conference - Pointers

    • Centre is scared of Rahul Gandhi's politics as he is raising issues concerning the common public
    • This entire exercise is illegal, unconstitutional, malicious and an exercise by a prime minister burning in the fire of political vendetta
    • The protest march by Congress leaders in support of the former party chief will continue, descendants of (Mahatma) Gandhi will not fear the descendants of (Nathuram) Godse
    • Delhi Police arrested as many as 20,000 Congress leaders on Monday and kept them in illegal custody for 12 hours, five lakh people across the country have courted arrest in protest
    • Is this country democratic or an unbridled dictatorship? We are descendants of Gandhi. We will walk again. This is our satyagraha
    • The ED action is based on a private complaint from BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, which has been stayed on his appeal. An ED summons can only be based on an FIR
    • Is this a conspiracy to muzzle the voice of people? Has Rahul Gandhi become a hurdle in the way of the prime minister protecting the interests of his cronies?
