NEW DELHI: Former Congress chief and Lok Sabha MP Rahul Gandhi was detained along with several other party MPs while they were marching from Parliament towards Rashtrapati Bhavan on Tuesday.

The Congress lawmakers were protesting over alleged misuse of investigative agencies against opposition parties and demanding a discussion on the issue of price rise, inflation, GST rate hike in Parliament.

“All Congress MPs stopped at Vijay Chowk and prevented from marching to Rashtrapati Bhavan. Forcibly arrested. Now we are in police buses being taken to a place only PM and HM know where…,” tweeted Congress general secretary and media in-charge Jairam Ramesh.

In a tweet, Gandhi called the police action “dictatorship”.

“By misusing the police and agencies, even by arresting us, you will never be able to silence us. Only ‘Truth’ will end this dictatorship,” he said.

Congress workers are staging demonstrations in Delhi as well as in all state capitals to protest the questioning of the party chief in the National Herald case. Earlier, Rahul was also questioned in the same case over several days.

Rahul and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had accompanied their mother to the ED headquarters in the morning.

Congress leaders have termed the questioning of the Gandhis as “harassment” to pressurise the party.
