No Matter How Hard The Government Tries, It Will Not Be Able To Cage The Truth: Rahul Gandhi
Together we will fight till the PM's corruption has been stopped, he said.
New Delhi: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi Friday told those, who joined the protest against CBI Director Alok Verma being divested of his powers, that together “we will fight till the PM’s corruption has been stopped”.
The Congress on Friday organised nationwide protest marches to CBI offices accusing the government of trying to ‘cage the CBI’, as Gandhi, along with several others, courted arrest here and alleged “every institution was being ruined” in the country.
Later in the evening, Gandhi tweeted, “To the thousands of Indians who came out onto the streets today to say NO to corruption, NO to stopping the CBI from investigating Rafale and NO to injustice: everyday we will be joined by thousands more. Together we will fight till the PM’s corruption has been stopped.”
“No matter how hard the government tries, it will not be able to cage the truth,” Gandhi had tweeted earlier along with photographs of the protest march and him sitting at the Lodhi road police station.
While the Congress has been alleging a Rafale probe-link in the CBI chief’s divesting of power, the government and the BJP have rubbished the allegations as “hallucinations” of Gandhi.
Senior Congress leaders, including Gehlot, Ahmed Patel, Motilal Vora, Veerappa Moily and Anand Sharma, took part in the march here that culminated in a demonstration ahead of the CBI headquarters.
Loktantrik Janata Dal leader Sharad Yadav, CPI leader D Raja and TMC’s Nadimul Haque joined the protest.
The Congress’ protests in the national capital were replicated in other parts of the country.
