Earlier, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Soorajwala said, “The whole of Delhi has been blocked by barricades. This alone is enough to prove that the central government is afraid of the Congress. No one can oppress us, not only the British but also the new oppressors. We will fight.We are walking in the Gandhian way.The Congress has been the voice of the common man for 136 years.The Congress party will make any sacrifice for the people.
As a retaliatory measure against the Modi government, the central government is firing on the central intelligence agencies in an attempt to stifle the voice of the opposition. The Modi government is a cowardly government. “
