Sonia Gandhi National Herald Case Live News, Sonia Gandhi ED Deposition Today Live Updates: While hailing the Supreme Court’s verdict on the constitutional validity of powers provided to the ED under several provisions of the PMLA act, BJP national President JP Nadda told news agency ANI, “Supreme Court has upheld the PMLA and jurisdiction of ED. The law is taking its course and the Congress party’s attempt to keep one family above the law will not work. We must respect the law of the land.” After a dramatic day of clashes between the Delhi cops and the Congress workers, and several Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, getting detained at the national capital, Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi has deposed before the Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday for the second time in two days in connection with the National Herald money laundering case. The 75-year-old Congress leader was once again accompanied by daughter Priyanka Gandhi. Gandhi was grilled for over six hours by the central probing agency. She had appeared for the first round of questioning last week which lasted nearly three hours. The second round of questioning saw another round of violent protests, with Congress workers breaking barricades and clashing with the police in front of the AICC headquarters at Akbar Road. While Rahul Gandhi sat on a dharna before being detained by the police at Vijay Chowk, Congress leader Srinivas BV was manhandled by the cops and pushed into a vehicle.

In the recent round of protests, Congress have also added issues like GST rate hike, inflation and unemployment. Several Congress leaders including Rahul Gandhi, Jairam Ramesh, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury huddled together at the Kingsway camp, where they were lodged after being detained, and discussed on national issues and how they can be merged with the ongoing protests against Gandhi’s ED deposition.

The ED is probing the alleged financial irregularities arising out of the 2011 acquisition of the Associated Journals Limited and its assets worth over Rs 2,000 crore by Young India Private Limited, in which Gandhi is a director and holds 38 per cent of its shares.
