Senior Congress leaders including Ahmed Patel, Ambika Soni and Anand Sharma arrived at Delhi's Deen Dayal Upadhyay College
New Delhi: While the Supreme Court heard petitions filed by Alok Verma and Prashant Bhushan on CBI infighting and ouster, the Congress launched its protest near all offices of CBI across the country. In New Delhi, the party started off its march from Lodhi Road.
The party has been demanding reinstatement of Verma, who has been sent on leave, and an apology from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for "destroying" the image of the premier investigating agency.
Senior Congress leaders including Ahmed Patel, Ambika Soni and Anand Sharma arrived at Delhi's Deen Dayal Upadhyay College, the starting point of the Congress protest march. Expelled JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav has also joined the Congress protest.
Trinamool Congress is also slated to join the Congress party protest.
The Supreme Court on Friday said the CVC inquiry on allegations and counter-allegations in the long-pending feud between Verma and Asthana should be completed in 10 days under the supervision of the court.
