Congress to gherao RBI offices today
Hitting out at the Centre for its “failure” to restore money supply post-demonetisation, the Congress said that it will gherao Reserve Bank of India here and 25 of its offices across the country on Wednesday.
The gherao will be lead by senior party leaders, including AICC General Secretaries, CWC Members, PCC Presidents and CLP leaders, a party statement said.
Deputy leader of the party in Rajya Sabha Anand Sharma will lead the protest in Delhi, while party’s chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala will do the same at the RBI headquarters in Mumbai. Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC) chief N Sanjiva Reddy will lead the protests in Kolkata, while former Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde would do so in Ahmedabad, the statement said.
A decision in the matter was taken by the party at the ‘Jan Vedna Sammelan’ presided by party Vice President Rahul Gandhi here last week.
