Maharashtra Congress Party Chairman Nana Patul on Saturday alleged that the BJP was abusing central agencies against Sonia and the party’s MP Rahul Gandhi out of political revenge.
Batul accused the center of ignoring democratic principles and the constitution. “Modi’s government has turned central investigative agencies like the CBI, ED, Income Tax Department and Drug Enforcement Bureau into puppets and is being misused to silence dissent. Leaders of opposition parties across the country are allegedly under attack and action is being taken against them.
Patul said the BJP was shocked to see the enthusiasm of the Congress at the party’s recent Navsankalp Shavir party in Udaipur, Rajasthan, “and that is why to put pressure on our leaders, ED notices are being sent to them on fabricated cases.” “The Maharashtra Pradesh state congress stands firmly behind Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, and we are not afraid of the repressive methods used by the Modi government,” he said.

Patul said his party had raised its voice against the “oppressive, authoritarian and arbitrary rule of the BJP”. “The Congress has taken to the street to hold the BJP accountable for issues such as the Three Farm Acts, inflation and unemployment,” he said.
On 13 June, the protest in Mumbai Patul will be led by Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thawrat, Ministers Ashok Chavan, KC Padvi, Amit Deshmukh, Aslam Sheikh, Satej Patel, Vishwajit Kadam and Mumbai Congress President Bhai Jagta, among others. In Nagpur, the protest will be led by ministers Nitin Raut Vijay Aditiwar, Yashumati Thakur and Sunil Kedar.
