Congress president Rahul Gandhi
I spoke with Mamata Di tonight and told her we stand shoulder to shoulder with her.
The happenings in Bengal are a part of the unrelenting attack on India’s institutions by Mr Modi & the BJP.
The entire opposition will stand together & defeat these fascist forces.

Just spoke to @MamataOfficial didi to convey the support of @JKNC_ as she sits in dharna. The use of the CBI as a political tool has crossed all limits as has the Modi government’s misuse of institutions. A former CM having such little regard for India’s federalism is shocking

The BJP wants to stay in power by hook or by crook. They are so scared of losing that CBI is being used as election agents
This is undemocratic and against spirit of the constitution. We demand due process be followed so that CBI is not used as a tool of political interference.
