Her brother, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, too was detained a short while earlier than she was. The leaders had been restricted to a corridor in Kingsway Camp in GTB Nagar.

Earlier than beginning a deliberate march to Rashtrapati Bhavan and a “gherao” of the Prime Minister’s home, Congress MPs led led by celebration chief Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi wore black garments to Parliament. Proceedings had been adjourned as Congress members created an uproar over the alleged misuse of probe companies and the federal government “ignoring folks’s points”.

A press release from the celebration mentioned its Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members would maintain a “Chalo Rashtrapati Bhavan” march from Parliament. Congress Working Committee (CWC) members and different senior leaders deliberate to participate in “PM Home gherao”.

Forward of the protest in the present day, Rahul Gandhi mentioned, “We’re witnessing the dying of democracy.”

“What India has constructed brick by brick, beginning nearly a century in the past, is being destroyed in entrance of your eyes. Anyone who stands in opposition to this concept of onset of dictatorship is viciously attacked, jailed, arrested and overwhelmed up,” he mentioned.

The BJP retorted with a jibe, asking if there’s democracy throughout the Congress, calling it a “dynastic” celebration.
