Rahul Gandhi writes to Kishorechandra

IMPHAL, 18th Jan: AICC president Rahul Gandhi wrote to Kishorechandra Wangkhem, who has been detained under National Security Act (NSA), and expressed solidarity of Congress party with him and extended support. In the letter dated January 2, Rahul Gandhi strongly condemned his detention under NSA while terming it as another attempt to use state machinery to silence voice of dissent. "Over the past few months, we have witnessed the BJP government's design to trample on the constitutional rights of the people of Manipur," the letter stated. The AICC president said that it is unfortunate that regressive forces continue to unleash violence with impunity, while those who seek accountability from the state are being jailed. Fascist forces have not only attempted to destroy the idea of India but attack anyone who challenges their distorted narrative, he added.
