New Delhi: Congress leader Sachin Pilot was detained on Wednesday when he was trying to enter the Congress office. Sachin Pilot, who was sent to Narela police station, said, “It is a bad sign for democracy, as leaders and workers are not allowed to go to their party offices.”
Congress leaders protesting the Enforcement Directorate’s questioning of Rahul Gandhi have alleged that he was not allowed to enter the Congress headquarters at 24 Akbar Road here and several MPs claimed that he was not even allowed to leave the house.
Congress General Secretary (Organisation) K.C. Venugopal said “Today, Delhi Police forcibly entered the headquarters of India’s oldest political party. As soon as they opened the doors of AICC headquarters, they crushed the democracy for which our ancestors fought and gave their lives. The BJP has really killed Indian democracy.”
Earlier, for the third consecutive day, Rahul Gandhi reached the Enforcement Directorate office for questioning, after which party workers along with senior leaders staged a sit-in outside the ED office.
