Condemning the FIR, Congress Communications Department chief Randeep Surjewala said, “The FIR lodged against former MP and Congress spokesperson Udit Raj, a media portal and some individuals is a clear example of strangulation of democracy by BJP and its leaders. . The Congress Party demands the immediate withdrawal of all politically motivated FIRs, as such hand waving will not calm the voice of our leaders who are weak, deprived and committed to the cause of marginalization. “Filing an FIR against Congress leader Udit Raj, web portal Mojo Story and others is yet another example of harassment and bullying by the drunken BJP government to silence contradictory or dissenting voices is”. The law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh has completely collapsed as the state government has failed in its duty to keep people safe, Surjewala said that instead of going after the culprits of various crimes, the government targeted media and political leaders. She is making. “Resorting to registration of false FIRs” and “using other coercive measures to intimidate and intimidate people to expose the truth”. .
