Accusing the BJP of playing a “cheap trick” to disqualify Rahul Gandhi as a Lok Sabha member, the Congress on Sunday announced that its workers and leaders would hold Mahatma Gandhi events in every state capital on July 12 as a protest. Will do ‘silent satyagraha’ near the statues of Gandhi.

Congress general secretary KC Venugopal said in a statement that Gandhi has been the strongest and most vocal opponent of the Narendra Modi-led BJP government.

Venugopal said, “After the hugely successful ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, Rahul Gandhi made a historic speech in the Lok Sabha, revealing the nexus between Prime Minister Modi and the Adani group.”

He alleged that as a result, the BJP “played its dirty tricks” to disqualify Gandhi from Parliament.

The Congress had on Friday said it would move the Supreme Court after the Gujarat High Court refused to stay Gandhi’s conviction over his “Modi surname” remark in a 2019 defamation case. It alleged that the government was finding new ways to silence her voice as it was scared of her speaking the truth.

Venugopal said Gandhi remained firm in his resolve to fearlessly take on the ruling dispensation and listen to the problems of India’s poor, farmers, labourers, youth and marginalised.

He said that even outside Parliament, he continues to be the voice of the people and a leader on whom people can trust.

Venugopal claimed, “As a result, not only the Congress, but the entire country is fuming over his wrongful and vindictive disqualification.”

The Congress general secretary said, “We appeal to 140 crore Indians, irrespective of their affiliation, to stand with the forces of justice and liberty, to stand against the undermining of democracy.”

Venugopal said that as a protest, all state units of the Congress would observe ‘silent satyagraha’ near the statues of Mahatma Gandhi in each state capital on Wednesday, July 12, 2023, from 10 am to 5 pm.
