Speaking to reporters, Ronnie Lyngdoh condemned the disqualification of the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.

“This is suppressing the democratic right, suppressing the democratic freedom of speech and expression by the NDA government led by Narendra Modi”, said Lyngdoh.

“They want to suppress the truth that our leader Rahul Gandhi has been raising in the parliament and in various platforms about the misgovernanace and misrule of the government”, added Lyngdoh.
