New Delhi: Congress in Rajya Sabha on Friday accused the government of abusing and insulting the Constitution, on a day its top leadership took to streets to protest the assaults on democracy.

Raising the issue during Question Hour in Rajya Sabha, Deputy Leader of Congress Anand Sharma said the top leadership of his party is protesting against the "assaults on democracy" by this government.

 

"This government is abusing and insulting the Constitution. Indian Constitution is being insulted. Democracy is being assaulted," he said.

Sharma said all party leaders including Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice President Rahul Gandhi have been "arrested".

"We are protesting the assault on democracy by this government," he said.

Under attack over AgustaWestland issue, a combative Sonia Gandhi, while addressing the protest march, hit back at the Modi government saying it should not try to frighten Congress and that life has taught her to fight on.

She, Rahul Gandhi and other top party leaders later courted arrest after they were stopped from marching to Parliament.
