The residences of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi are surrounded by the Delhi Police. Due to this, Mallikarjun Kharge tried to raise the issue of alleged police barricading in the Rajya Sabha but he was not permitted. Hence, Congress MPs walked out from the Rajya Sabha.
Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are facing money laundering cases relating to the Congress owned National Herald that are being probed by the Enforcement Directorate. Kharge objected saying if he does not bring up the issue in the House, where else should he speak. To which the leader of the House replied that the issue does not concern the Rajya Sabha and that law is taking its course.
