Will take on dictatorship with Gandhian style: Rahul

New Delhi: Extending support to opposition protest against the suspension of 12 Rajya Sabha MPs, Congress leader president Rahul Gandhi has said they will not bow before ‘dictatorship’ and continue to agitate in ‘Gandhian style’.

The former Congress president said this while sharing a picture of opposition leaders protesting outside Mahatma Gandhi’s statue on the Parliament complex.

‘We will stand in Gandhian style before the dictatorship. And, we will not bend,’ Rahul said in a Facebook post, using the hashtag ‘#NoFear’ and shared a picture of the protesting opposition MPs.

Meanwhile, Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu has said he was not considering Rajya Sabha Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge’s appeal of revoking the action as the suspended MPs have not shown any remorse, but on the contrary, justified their acts.
