NEW DELHI: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday summoned Congress president Sonia Gandhi for questioning in connection with a money laundering case involving the National Herald newspaper.
Sonia Gandhi, who was supposed to appear before the ED on June 8, had sought three more weeks in the wake of her Covid-19 infection.
Meanwhile, the party was considering holding protests in the capital, including a march to the office of the enforcement agency, days before Congress member Rahul Gandhi‘s scheduled appearance before the ED.
Congress has also called all its MPs and senior office bearers to the Akbar Road headquarters on Monday morning and they are likely to take out the march to coincide with Rahul’s visit to the agency office. Also, a meeting of state in charges will be held on Thursday to finalise a programme for countrywide protests. So far there was no indication that the party would take to the street to protest against ED’s move against the Gandhis.
The ED has alleged money laundering in the Herald-AJL debt settlement effected by its management that involves the Congress brass. But the Congress has rubbished the charges, arguing that there has been no transfer of assets and no money exchanged, for there to be any laundering. Congress has accused the governing BJP of filing a baseless case out of political vendetta.
