Congress's Show Of Strength On Rahul Gandhi's Probe Agency Date Tomorrow

The party has maintained that the charges against its leaders are “fake and baseless”

New Delhi:

Congress is planning a huge show of strength on Monday when its leader and MP Rahul Gandhi will appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in the National Herald case.

Congress leader Manickam Tagore said that party workers will hold protests outside 25 offices of the probe agency spread across the country to protest the “misuse” of the central investigative agencies by the Central government to “silence the voice of opposition”.

Senior leaders will march with Mr Gandhi to the office of the Enforcement Directorate in the national capital tomorrow, he said.

Mr Tagore accused the government of hatching a conspiracy to implicate Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in a fake case.

The party has maintained that the charges against its leaders are “fake and baseless”, saying the summonses are part of the BJP’s “vendetta politics”.

“Leaders of opposition parties across the country are being raided and action is being taken against them. Congress will protest against the government for acting against Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi with a political vendetta,” he said.

The case pertains to the probe into the alleged financial irregularities in the party-promoted Young Indian that owns the National Herald newspaper, founded by Jawaharlal Nehru, the great-grandfather of Mr Gandhi.

The paper is published by Associated Journals Limited and owned by Young Indian Pvt Limited.

The agency registered a fresh case under the criminal provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after a Delhi court took cognisance of a private criminal complaint filed by BJP MP Subramanian Swamy in 2013.
