New Delhi, March 26
Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday said a martyred prime minister’s son who walked thousands of kilometres for national unity can never insult the country as the Congress held a nationwide protest against the disqualification of Rahul Gandhi from the Lok Sabha.
Priyanka Gandhi was addressing the ‘Sankalp Satyagraha’ at Rajghat—the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi—here to protest against Rahul Gandhi’s conviction in a 2019 defamation case and his subsequent disqualification from the Lok Sabha.
She said the time had come to raise a voice against an “arrogant government” as barring Rahul Gandhi from contesting elections does not bode well for the country and its democracy.
The Congress has launched a day-long satyagraha at all states and district headquarters to protest against Gandhi’s conviction in a 2019 defamation case and his subsequent disqualification from the Lok Sabha.
