Accusing the government of “murdering democracy” by using force against 21-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi, the Opposition on Monday said the voice of India cannot be silenced.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi led the opposition offensive, tweeting in Hindi: “Your lips are free to speak. Say that the truth is still alive. They are scared, not the country. India will not be silenced.”
In Kolkata, West Bengal CM and Trinamool Congress chief Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, “Arresting anybody who is protesting against government policies is unacceptable. The BJP should first take action against its own IT cell members who are spreading fake news. Why two sets of rules?”
