New Delhi, The Congress has called a meeting of all Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha MPs at the Congress Parliamentary Party Office on Thursday at 9:45 am to discuss the party’s future strategy. The meeting is being called after the ED temporarily sealed the office of Congress’ Young Indian (YI) in Delhi as part of a money laundering probe. According to ANI, additional police personnel have been deployed outside the Congress headquarters at 24 Akbar Road and the residence of interim party president Sonia Gandhi at 10 Janpath. According to an input received from the Special Branch of Delhi Police, the protesters could have gathered in large numbers at these two places after the ED’s action.

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh took a jibe at the deployment of the additional force, saying the Delhi Police has made blocking the road leading to the All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters a common practice rather than an exception! Why the police did this is a mystery. In view of the action, Congress MPs will also give notice of adjournment motion in Parliament regarding the incident.

Notice given to Congress

Congress leader Ajay Maken said at a press conference in Delhi that he has received a letter from the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), stating that the party cannot hold protests on August 5. Along with this, the AICC headquarters has also been converted into a police cantonment. Maken further said that the government can suppress him as much as he wants, but he will oppose inflation, unemployment, GST on food items and will continue his protest even after going to jail.

Let us tell you that earlier on 30 July, the party had announced that they would hold a massive nationwide protest on 5 August over price hike and unemployment. On the appointed day, party MPs were planning to organize ‘Chalo Rashtrapati Bhavan’ from Parliament and gherao the PM House to register their protest on the issues. Congress says that the government is taking action against them out of fear of protests.
