Congress Leaders To Meet President Over Manhandling By Police Amid Protest

New Delhi: A delegation of Congress leaders is likely to meet President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday and submit a memorandum on the issue of entry of police into party headquarters and allegedly misbehaving with party MPs during protests against the Enforcement Directorate probe on party leader Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case.

The Congress scion was quizzed by the probe agency for three consecutive days for more than 30 hours sparking protests by Congress leaders and workers across the country.

The Congress on Wednesday registered a complaint against the Delhi Police for entering and attacking party workers, without provocation, at 24 Akbar Road. The complaint was filed at Tughlak Road Police Station, New Delhi.

Congress has alleged that its leaders have been manhandled during protests.

If sources are to be believed, ED on Thursday issued fresh summons to Rahul Gandhi to join the investigation in the National Herald case on Monday, accepting his request to the agency to consider postponing his questioning from June 17 to June 20 on grounds of his mother and party interim president Sonia Gandhi’s health condition.

Sonia Gandhi was admitted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital on Sunday owing to post-Covid issues. Congress general secretary and chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said Gandhi is stable and will be in the hospital for a few days.

Senior  Congress leaders including Harish Rawat, Randeep Surjewala, and Rajasthan Chief Minister  Ashok Gehlot were detained by the authorities for participating in the protests against ED. Hundreds of Congress workers were detained by the Delhi police so far, according to officials.
