ED probe against #RahulGandhi is an attempt to muzzle his voice as he has always questioned Modi govt on issues like China capturing our territory, inflation, fuel price hike, unemployment, religious vendetta...He is being constantly attacked: Randeep Surjewala@rssurjewala pic.twitter.com/WvgRg9Y8ui— Dynamite News (@DynamiteNews_) June 14, 2022
The Congress leader was referring to the ED calling Gandhi for questioning for the second day under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in connection with the National Herald newspaper.
The party Spokesperson said that the government was conspiring to suppress the voices raising public issues. If raising questions of the public is a crime, then Congress will commit this crime again and again and will continue to become a hindrance in the work of serving the interests of wealthy people of the Modi government, he said, adding that the government conspired the whole day on Monday to suppress the voice of Congress.
The government deputed 40-50 of its Ministers in this work, who continued to broadcast anti-Congress news through their favorite television channels throughout Monday, Surjewala alleged.

Agencies are used against the leaders, who raise their voice against the policies of the government while staying in the opposition, he said.
The spokesperson further said that Congress has paid the salaries of troubled National Herald journalists and paid the pending electricity bills.
If this is a crime, then such crimes are happening all over the country and the government should put everyone in the dock, he added. (UNI)
