Congress leader KC Venugopal said that we were surprised to know why Rahul Gandhi was stopped from the visit. People were waiting on both sides of the road and waiting to waive for Rahul Gandhi, but he was stopped and sent back. Congress leaders take a dig at BJP for blocking the way to Rahul Gandhi. Congress party president Mallikarjun Kharge wrote on Twitter, “ using autocratic methods to stall a compassionate outreach”. He also tweeted, “This is totally unacceptable and shatters all constitutional and democratic norms. Manipur needs peace, not confrontation”.
