ED violating law, alleges Congress, pledges to continue 'satyagraha'

National Herald Case: 

A host of senior Congress leaders were detained on Tuesday for staging protests against the Enforcement Directorate (ED) interrogation of party leader Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case. 

Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Tuesday said that the party will continue the ‘satyagraha’ against the Centre’s “misuse of the law”.

“We are protesting against the Centre’s misuse of law. If ED follows the law, we have no problem. But ED is not following the law. We are asking what is the scheduled offence? There’s no answer. Which police agency has registered an FIR? There is no answer. Give us a copy of the FIR. There is no answer,” Chidambaram told news agency ANI.

He alleged that the ED is violating the law and said that the Congress is entitled to protest in a democratic set-up.

“So in the absence of the scheduled offence, in the absence of police agency registering an FIR and giving us a copy of an FIR, where is the question of ED investigation under PMLA? For very simple questions, there are no answers. Obviously, they are not following the law and in a democracy, we are entitled to protest,” he said.

The Congress leader further asked, “Is there any BJP leader against whom the ED has registered a case in the last 4-5 years? Is there any BJP-ruled state like Haryana, Madhya Pradhya, or Karnataka, where the ED has registered a case? If this law applies to the whole of India, why does this apply to Opposition states and Opposition leaders?”

“Everything about the Youth India, Associated Journal tractions are recorded in the Income Tax return in the balance sheet of the company. The Income Tax case is pending before the SC. Both Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and others have filed affidavits in the Supreme Court. The SC record is the public, all the facts are stated there. What is the questioning? What is the questioning you want to know? Every transition is recorded in the balance sheet and in an income tax return and if you have doubt read the affidavits filed in the SC. What is the sudden discovery of the PMLA case?” he added.

When asked about the BJP’s allegations against the party regarding the case, the Congress leader said, “none of the BJP leaders knows the facts.”

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on the second day of questioning in the National Herald case. He was questioned for more than 10 hours on Monday as the ED investigated the National Herald money laundering allegations.

The first day of the interrogation saw high political drama and street protests, with several top Congress leaders detained on Monday.

The party’s ‘Satyagraha March’ was attended by several senior leaders, including Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel and Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot. 

Former Union Minister P Chidambaram said he suffered a fractured left rib after being pushed by Delhi Police during a party protest.
