Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij on Saturday sang the tunes of the hit song ‘Laga Chunri Mein Daag’ and improvised the lyrics to convey the real pain of the Congress, taking a dig at the black-clad protests by the Congress against inflation and unemployment. For hiding from ED scrutiny.
Singing the popular tune from the film ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963), Vij accused the Congress of launching black protests on Friday to evade the Enforcement Directorate (ED) probe against its key leaders in the National Herald case. “Laga chunri mein daag chupaun kaise (How will I hide the stain on my veil) Bach jana kaise (How will I escape)? That is the real pain and hence they resort to satyagraha to pressurize the ED. Mahatma Gandhi’s Satyagraha was never for theft and fraud,” he told news agency ANI.

He added that Congress leaders were known for wearing white clothes earlier but now they have turned black due to their evil deeds. “Their clothes have become black because of their kali kartu. Wearing these black clothes, they are agitating to put pressure on the ED for people’s rights,” he alleged.
Dressed in black, Congress leaders staged protests against inflation and unemployment on Friday. More than 60 Congress MPs, including Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, were released after police detained them for nearly six hours, following riots outside Parliament and the AICC headquarters in New Delhi.
Vij claimed that there is no need to panic if the party believes it has done nothing wrong. “If they are telling the truth, why are they afraid? You contact and tell ED. If something wrong is found and it will be proved. If you have faith and trust in the democracy of the country…” he said.
He also accused Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of starting an agitation to withdraw the ED notices. “But I think Rahul Gandhi wants to create such a democracy that if an ED notice is issued, there will be a compulsion to protest and wear black clothes to withdraw the ED notice.”
The Congress’s decision to wear black during nationwide protests against inflation, GST on essential goods and unemployment has been linked by many opposition leaders, including Union Home Minister Amit Shah, to the party’s “appeasement” politics. Shah also said that the protests on Friday also showed Congress’s opposition to the laying of the foundation stone of the Ram temple by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the same day in 2020.
“Congress is showing its opposition to temple construction and ED action and inflation issues are just excuses,” claimed Shah. He also added that while the opposition could not have openly expressed its opposition to the temple, they have tried to send a “hidden message”.
However, Gaurav Gogoi, deputy leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, while explaining the reason behind the party’s decision to wear black during the protest, told PTI, “During the debate on inflation in Parliament, BJP members said they don’t see inflation, so by wearing black today we are expressing the anger of our people, we They (government) have opened their eyes to the reality of India today.
Congress spokesperson Shama Mohammad said that the purpose of this is to convey the message of protest. “This is a black day because Rahulji said there is no democracy, democracy is dead in India. They don’t hear anything about inflation, so we are protesting.
