Political tension after action on 'Young India'; Increased police presence outside Sonia-Rahul's residence

New Delhi : After the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday locked the office of Young India Company at Herald House in connection with the alleged financial misappropriation of the Congress mouthpiece National Herald, it became clear that the wheels of inquiry have started spinning fast. Therefore, Congress has taken an aggressive stance against the central government and it has been seen that political tension has also started to increase.

The ED raided Herald House on Tuesday, after which the next day it issued an order not to open the offices of Young India without prior permission. Keeping in mind the possibility of Congress workers taking to the streets and protesting after the action on ‘Herald House’, Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s ‘Daha Janpath’ residence on Akbar Road along with ‘Herald House’, as well as the neighboring Congress headquarters, were heavily beefed up. All roads adjacent to Akbar Road were also blocked. Jairam Ramesh, head of media department of Congress and Member of Parliament, criticized the siege of the Congress headquarters and made it look like a camp and also circulated the footage of the police blockade on social media.

Due to the action of ‘ED’, political events also gained momentum. Senior Congress leaders rushed to the party headquarters as police cordoned off around Sonia Gandhi’s residence. In it, Mallikarjuna Kharge, P. Chidambaram, Digvijay Singh, Salman Khurshid and other leaders held a meeting and decided to take an aggressive stance against the central government and the BJP. Congress President Sonia Gandhi protested against the central government by coming directly in front of the Speaker in the Lok Sabha during the morning session. The Congress has been consistently trying to raise issues in both the Houses of Parliament against the ‘ED’ probe of opposition leaders. Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi was on a tour of Karnataka on Wednesday, and is said to be returning to Delhi late at night.

Modi’s residence besieged on Friday

Leader Ajay Maken criticized the sudden ‘ED’ action as a ploy to divert attention from the Congress’ planned protest march against unemployment and inflation. Congress is going to hold a nationwide protest on August 5 on Friday against inflation and unemployment. In Delhi, Congress MPs will march from Parliament to Rashtrapati Bhavan. Maken also said that Congress executive members and senior leaders will besiege Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence.

Criticism on BJP..

As soon as it appeared that the central government was increasing pressure against the Congress, the Congress immediately held a press conference and condemned the Center and the BJP. The Congress criticized that the Center has given free rein to the ‘ED’ to take action against the opposition leaders. Claiming that the ED raids were an ‘insult and a threat’, spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi hit out at the BJP, saying that it cannot silence the BJP’s threats to the Congress. Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge said that it is a ploy by the Center to scare people so that they do not revolt. Jairam Ramesh criticized that only those who gave threats (BJP) are scared and they are doing revenge politics.

Discussion of action..

Police presence was also increased in the Tughlaq Road area where Rahul Gandhi resides. Delhi Police imposed curfew in these areas. Due to these developments, there was talk of possible action against members of the Gandhi family. Sonia Gandhi has been interrogated for three days and Rahul Gandhi for five days in the “National Herald” case.
