Rahul Gandhi, the Congress MP from Wayanad, Kerala, on Tuesday said the Centre has a tendency to use national agencies as political weapons.
Gandhi said this while interacting with the media during his first visit to his constituency after the Covid-19 pandemic broke out in March.
Since his arrival at Wayanad on Monday, Gandhi has been participating in meetings organised by district authorities and will return on Wednesday.
“It’s not Farooq Abdullah alone, there are many other leaders including me, who have cases registered [against us] by these agencies. The CBI and ED are being used to pressurise and such acts will only help to destroy these agencies. These agencies are not personal institutions of the Prime Minister,” said Gandhi.
On the new three Farm Bills of the Modi regime, Gandhi said these will break the backbone of farmers.
