Party sources said Gandhi will be accompanied by Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, Leader of the party in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge and several other party leaders and MPs.

Only yesterday, Congress had demanded immediate removal of Police Commissioner BS Bassi.

Citing the attacks in Patiala House court here, Congress had yesterday alleged that “jungle raj” is prevailing in Delhi.

JNU students union leader Kanhaiya Kumar and some journalists were yesterday attacked in a court complex here by rowdy lawyers.

Despite instructions by the apex court to ensure security at the Patiala House Court, where violent men in black robes had attacked journalists on Monday, Delhi Police failed to prevent the attack on Kumar, who has been accused of sedition.

On Monday too, journalists were attacked by such elements.

The Congress Vice President had led protests over the Rohith Vemula issue in Hyderabad and also the FTII students agitation in Pune.

  1. Why does he want to run for highest office in India when he seems to have more ‘soft corner’ towards those who hate India? Then again, I don’t even know why our media gives this guy with 44-seats so much coverage!!
