The National Herald Corruption Case is haunting the grand old Congress party. Party interim President Sonia Gandhi and former President Rahul Gandhi were asked to appear before the ED for questioning. While Sonia Gandhi was exempted due to her health, Rahul Gandhi is facing the music as he is being grilled for long hours.
The case took a political turn with the Congress party alleging the case was a political vendetta by the Union government. To extend their support for the Gandhi scion Rahul Gandhi the leaders are cadre gave a call for nationwide protests against the case.
However, these protests turned violent in some regions like Telangana as the leaders and cops had a war of words. The Telangana wing of the Congress party called for 'Chalo Raj Bhavan' to fight against the Union government in the National Herald row. Including Telanagana chief of Congress Revanth Reddy, few leaders actively took part in the protest.
The Congress party leaders could not go ahead with the protests as they were stopped by the cops deployed at Raj Bhavan. Senior Congress leader and former MP Renuka Chowdhury created a ruckus at the Raj Bhavan. She expressed her dissatisfaction over the behavior of cops and held an SI by his collar.
She asked how can the cops stop her from doing the protests and started an argument with the cops. The argument turned intense with the Ex-MP holding his collar. But the cop did not lose his cool and made sure that he won't get out of control.
On the other hand, the Congress party leaders went on a rampage part of the Chalo Raj Bhavan protest. A few TSRTC buses were attacked by breaking the glasses and a scooter was burnt in the middle of the road. The pictures and videos of Congress leaders creating havoc went viral.
CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka also took everyone by surprise by reportedly mishandling the DCP. It is said that the Congress leader reportedly held the DCP's collar. For creating ruckus on the road, the congress leaders were arrested by the cops and they were rushed to the nearby police station.
