A group of party workers attached to the Karnataka Pradesh Youth Congress, including a woman, holding the party flag, torched the car, sparking tension in the area. They waved ‘Congress zindabad’ slogans in front of the ED office in Shantinagar town.

The state congressional unit staged a massive protest at the premises of Freedom Park in the state capitol. The party said the protest will continue until the ruling BJP stops “torturing” Sonia Gandhi by misusing central government agencies.

Congress Party State Chairman DK Shivakumar said, “Let the BJP show the video recording of Congress Speaker Sonia Gandhi’s investigation.

“This is not good conduct by the BJP party. By staging protests, we are showing the people of the country how power is being misused by the ruling BJP,” Shivakumar said.

“We are not afraid of ED’s investigation. They are misusing the agency to torture. All charges against Sonia Gandhi are false allegations. Late BJP leader Arun Jaitley had told Parliament that there were no charges against Sonia Gandhi,” he said. .

“No charges were proven against her during the preliminary investigation. Why is she now under investigation?” said Shivakumar.
