March For Democracy: Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh arrested at Congress’ Save Democracy rally: Members of Congress party along with former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Party President Sonia Gandhi, and Vice-President Rahul Gandhi were arrested by the police on Friday.
Party workers opposed the arrest outside the Parliament Street Police station by climbing across police barricades.
The party had taken out a march against BJP government which is called “Save Democracy March”. They started the march from Jantar Mantar.
And ended at Parliament House on Friday.
Before the march, the party leaders of Congress thumped the Narendra Modi government. They were asking them where their promised ‘Achhe Din’ was and accused them of “attacking democracy.”
Sonia Gandhi alleged Modi management that the Congress-led governments in Uttarakhand and Arunachal Pradesh were uprooted by using the power of money.
In reply, she said Don’t think that we are weak and we will let democratic institutions be destroyed.
She said, “Uttarakhand’s jungles are burning but no measure has been taken to it because there is no government. The BJP government is murdering democracy by taking down democratically elected governments. No matter how much they try to fight democracy, we will not let them succeed.”
Rahul Gandhi spouted the crowd at Jantar Mantar.
He said only two people commands runs in the country and who opposed that proved to be a false alleged. Modiji had pronounced about Ache din where they are. Today people in India are suffering only and farmers are committing suicide. Modiji doesn’t have a single word to say.
After the leaders of the party addressed the crowd the workers of the party gathered in a huge crowd across the country to march against the BJP.
Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and some top leaders of Congress were taken to the Parliament Street police station.
The crowd was gathered outside the police station after the leaders were arrested. The party workers climbed the barricades to protest against their leader’s arrest.
After the arrest, the leaders were later released.
