The protesters took out a procession from Coin Circle, Manipal to the DC Office and shouted slogans against the Union Government for Misusing the investigation agencies.

Addressing the protesters, former minister Vinay Kumar Sorake accused the central government of misusing investigating agencies to frame party senior leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in false cases.

The presidential election is nearing and the ruling BJP is worried because they don’t have sufficient votes to win the elections. The BJP has been misleading the people to divert their attention from serious problems that the country is facing,” he said.

The Congress will not tolerate the politics of vendetta, he alleged that the Enforcement Directorate summons to the Gandhis was politically motivated. The Centre was misusing the ED, income tax, and CBI, he said.

Later the protesters submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner and demanded to stop misusing the investigating agencies.
