Police detain women Congress workers during protest outside the AICC office

Rahul Gandhi appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday for the third consecutive day of questioning in the National Herald money laundering case. The Congress leader arrived at the ED headquarters on APJ Abdul Kalam Road in central Delhi around 11.35 am with his "Z+" category CRPF security escort. He was accompanied by his sister and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. A huge contingent of police and paramilitary personnel was deployed around the federal agency's office, and prohibitory orders under section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) are in force. In the last two days, Rahul Gandhi has spent around 21 hours at the ED's office, where he was questioned over multiple sessions and his statement was recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). Officials said Gandhi's questioning could not be completed on Tuesday, and hence, he was asked to continue the recording of his statement on Wednesday.

    Congress' protest against corruption probe shows its decline: BJP

    Accusing the Congress of resorting to violent protests to "hide" its corruption, the BJP on Wednesday said the opposition party's stir shows its progressive decline and claimed that covering up the Gandhi family's alleged graft is the "true satya" of its "satyagraha".

    BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi invoked Mahatma Gandhi's decision to call off the Congress' non-cooperation movement due to violence and said the party's "violent protests" now for opposing the probe in a case of corruption shows how small the party has become.

    Addressing a press conference, Trivedi noted that Rahul Gandhi, who is being questioned by the ED in the National Herald case, is neither his party's president nor the leader of the opposition as he questioned the Congress' show of strength for him.

    Pointers from Bhupesh Baghel's press conference

    • We cannot bring our own staff to the AICC office now. Office bearers cannot come to Office. We were told that only two CMs can come here and no one else has permission. This kind of situation never rose where members of political parties cannot enter the office. Why is this happening?
    • It is because one person is raising his voice against the wrongdoings of the Centre for the last 8 years. The person is Rahul Gandhi. Be it GST, demonetisation, COVID, mismanagement, lockdown, unemployment, inflation, or the security of borders, Rahul Gandhi has been raising his voice against every important issue
    • They want to suppress Rahul Gandhi. They are misusing the central agencies against Opposition leaders in order to suppress them. Now they are trying to use these tactics against Rahul Gandhi
