Sonia Gandhi getting questioned by ED in National Herald Case
The Congress President Sonia Gandhi is getting questioned by ED in their office in the National Herald case. The chief is accompanied by her daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Under the criminal sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA, the statement will be recorded by the agency, and it will also be saved in audio-video mode.
The investigation connects to supposedly financial irregularities in the Congress-endorsed Young Indian Private Limited, which holds the National Herald Newspaper. The opposition, in a joint statement, criticizes the Centre’s ‘misuse’ of investigating agencies and decides to strengthen the fight against the “anti-people”, “anti-farmers” and “anti-Constitution” of the Modi government.
“Modi govt has unleashed a relentless vendetta against political opponents through misuse of investigative agencies by targeting prominent leaders of various parties. We will intensify our fight against the anti-people Modi Sarkar,” said the statement.
On the other hand, outside the Enforcement Directorate’s office, as many as 75 Congress MPs, including the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, are detained after they protested against the summons to their party chief Sonia Gandhi in a money laundering case.
As a special exemption, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will be allowed to go inside the ED office with her mother, even though she won’t be allowed inside the interrogation room, as per the officials. It seems like the political turmoil would increase only in national politics.
