New Delhi, August 5
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday alleged that there was no democracy but only dictatorship in India and anyone who stood against the idea of this dictatorship is put in jail.
“How are you enjoying the onset of dictatorship in India?” Gandhi asked as the opening sentence of his press conference at the AICC headquarters ahead of Congress Party’s pan India agitation against price rise on Friday.
“Today, there is no democracy in India. Today, there’s a dictatorship of four people. We want to raise issues of unemployment, price rise, and social divisions. We are not allowed to speak in Parliament. We are arrested,” said Gandhi amid ongoing Enforcement Directorate (ED) investigations against him and Congress President Sonia Gandhi in the National Herald money laundering case.
Gandhi sidestepped any reference to the ED and attacked the government.
