Leaders and speakers addressing the rallies condemned Enforcement Directorate for acting as a tool of RSS.
“Using these agencies, central government is harassing social activists and organizations who question anti-people policies.”The organization was already co-operating all the enquiries and this hooliganism in the name of raid is completely planned by RSS under the supervision of BJP government. The organization is being targeted in this manner because it is organizing masses against anti-people and anti-constitutional moves of Modi govt like CAA and NRC.
The speakers warned that the organization will neither be intimidated nor stopped by such repressive measures.
On last December 3, the Enforcement Directorate had broken into Popular Front offices and the houses of leaders in the name of raid at various parts of the country.
