Delhi,
Aug
05:

The
Congress
opted
this
day
for
black-cloth
protest
to
further
promote
their
appeasement
politics
as
Prime
Minister
Narendra
Modi
laid
the
foundation
of
Ram
Janambhoomi
on
this
day
two
years
ago,
Union
Home
Minister
Amit

Cong opted this day for black cloth protest because...: Amit Shah

“Congress
chose
this
day
for
protest
and
wore
black
clothes
because
they
want
to
give
a
subtle
message
to
further
promote
their
appeasement
politics
because
on
this
day
itself
PM
Modi
laid
the
foundation
of
Ram
Janambhoomi,”
ANI
quoted
Shah
in
a
tweet.

Wearing
black
clothes,
Congress
leaders
hit
the
streets
on
Friday
to
protest
against
price
rise
and
unemployment
with
a
host
of
them,
including
Rahul
Gandhi
and
Priyanka
Gandhi
Vadra,
being
detained
by
police
amid
dramatic
standoffs
outside
Parliament
and
the
AICC
headquarters.

Congress
MPs,
including
former
party
chief
Rahul
Gandhi,
staged
a
protest
in
the
Parliament
House
complex
and
then
proceeded
to
take
out
a
march
towards
the
Rashtrapati
Bhawan
as
part
of
the
party’s
nationwide
stir
against
price
rise,
the
Goods
and
Services
Tax
(GST)
hike
on
essential
items
and
unemployment.

Urging
Congress
to
be
responsible,
Shah
said,
“Congress
must
co-operate
as
per
the
law.
The
matter
is
going
on
the
basis
of
complaints
that
have
been
filed.
As
far
as
ED
is
concerned,
everybody
should
respect
the
law
and
order
situation
in
the
country.”

The
protesting
MPs
of
the
opposition
party
raised
slogans
against
the
government
demanding
that
the
GST
hike
on
essential
items
be
withdrawn,
with
party
chief
Sonia
Gandhi
standing
with
the
women
MPs
holding
a
banner
outside
gate
number
1
of
Parliament.
The
protesters
were,
however,
stopped
by
the
Delhi
Police
and
not
allowed
to
proceed
towards
the
Rashtrapati
Bhawan.

More
than
60
Congress
MPs
were
detained
by
the
police
during
the
party’s
protest
in
Delhi
against
price
rise
and
unemployment
and
were
released
after
about
six
hours,
Congress
general
secretary
Jairam
Ramesh
said.
