NEW DELHI: Raisina Road saw a protest by Sansad Gherao of the Indian Youth Congress against the Center on Thursday in which senior congressional official Digvijaya Singh and hundreds of IYC workers were arrested.

Earlier, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, addressing the protest, attacked Prime Minister Modi saying Pegasus spyware was a tool to silence people. “Your cell phone is your voice. Narendra Modi put the idea of ​​Pegasus into every youngster’s cell phone, not just mine. This idea is that if you are telling the truth, Narendra Modi and Pegasus are there in your phones. “

Police used water cannons to disperse the protesters before arresting 589 people, including MPs and MPs, who were part of the IYC protest.

The three contentious farm laws, inflation, unemployment and the Pegasus espionage scandal were among the issues highlighted by protesters, who also accused the BJP of fleeing debate in parliament.

“I thank the thousands of Youth Congress workers who joined the Sansad Gherao led by Rahul Gandhi against this anti-people Modi Govt,” tweeted Srinivas BV, IYC national president.

DCP (New Delhi) Deepak Yadav said as many as 589 people were arrested because no permission was given to the organizer, Srinivas, to carry out the protest march.
