Party chief Mallikarjuna Kharge criticized the Modi government for turning Indian democracy into a ‘Hitlershahi’ by arresting party president and C Congress leader Pawan Khera by the Assam police. Kharge stated, “If the opposition raises issues in the Parliament, they will be given notice. Before the conference, the ED raided our leaders from Chhattisgarh. Today, the representative of the Congress was forcibly taken down from the plane and arrested. The Modi government has turned Indian democracy into a Hitler Shahi. We strongly condemn this dictatorship,” Kharge said. Near leaders Randeep Surjewala and KC Venugopal protested against the arrest. He criticized the Modi government.
