Delhi Police detained Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra outside the party’s headquarters in Delhi after she joined other party officials and members in a demonstration against unemployment and inflation, news agency ANI reported.

In the video posted on ANI’s official Twitter handle, Priyanka Gandhi can be seen being dragged by five to six women constables into the police vehicle. 

Earlier, Priyanka Gandhi was seen jumping over a police barricade placed near AICC headquarters to participate in the protest.

Earlier today, the police also detained Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress party, and several other party lawmakers as they marched from Parliament to Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Alleging that some MPs at protest were beaten by the police, Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi said, “All Congress MPs were marching towards Rashtrapati Bhawan to raise the issue of inflation & price rise but they are not allowing us to go ahead from here. Our job is to raise the issues of the people…Some MPs detained, also beaten.”

At the conference held on Friday, Rahul Gandhi launched a ferocious attack on the Modi government. He said that the manner in which the Centre has unleashed central agencies against opposition demonstrates India is witnessing the “onset of dictatorship”.
