Youth Congress gherao Parliament, several detained

New Delhi: Thousands of Youth Congress party cadres assembled at Jantar Mantar today to protest against the BJP-led NDA government for failing to contain the issue of rising intolerance in the country.

They were also protesting against the denial and silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue. The agitators alleged, while the country was engulfed by intolerance, the Prime Minister was busy in his foreign tours.

In its “Sansad Gherao” program, Youth Congress activists said that they would continue their fight against those who are supporting the murderer of the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi.

The protesters targetted the government for the price hike of essential commodities as well,  especially onions and potatoes.

The Youth Congress blamed the BJP and the RSS for fuelling intolerance across the country.

The Opposition has been targeting the government on the issues of growing intolerance and it is obvious that the Congress-led opposition would try to suffocate the government using the imbroglio.

In this context, the Youth Congress recalled LK Advani’s recent comments to target the BJP saying, even the ‘Margdarshak’ was feeling the same.

The youth wing of Congress also claimed that the BJP was not only intolerant towards the minorities, but women in India were under attack. The recent Haryana case where a minister asked a lady SP to leave justifies the allegations of the congress.

Jyotiraditya Scindia said that atmosphere of intolerance was created by the BJP and it should be rid off. He quipped that BJP was interested in “gai pe charcha’ (discussions on the cow) rather than ‘chai pe charcha’ (discussion over tea).

Youth Congress claimed that BJP had dumped the youths who voted them to power.

Reportedly, a clash broke out between the police and the agitators during the Sansad Gherao program outside the Parliament. Police resorted to lathi charge and used water cannons to disperse the mob. Several youth congress workers were also detained.

However, the Opposition is firm on carrying out their protest programs.
