Congress emulates Pakistan, to ‘gherao’ Indian embassies across the globe ‘to show solidarity with AICC on national issues’

Even as the Congress party is accused of taking the same line as Pakistan, the Indian Overseas Congress appears to have drawn inspiration from Pakistan as they plan to organise a demonstration by surrounding the Indian embassies across Europe.

Taking a cue from Pakistani protestors gheraoing the Indian embassy in London, the Indian Overseas Congress, which was until now largely dormant, has announced that it will stage demonstrations outside the Indian embassies across the globe to protest against the Modi government’s handling of the Indian economy and “India’s deteriorating condition”.

The official Twitter handle of the Indian Overseas Congress posted a tweet announcing their support to the Congress party’s call for Bharat Bachao by claiming that it will swarm around the Indian embassies in Europe on December 14 to protest against the massive failures of the BJP in the country.

The Congress poster terms this act in the footsteps of Pakistan as Congress’ call to ‘Bharat Bachao’. According to Congress, by protesting in front of the Indian Embassy on foreign soil, they are protesting against “Economic crisis, High Unemployment, Divisive Politics and Farmer Distress”.

In the aftermath of the abrogation of Article 370, Pakistani hooligans swarmed the Indian High Commission in London and vandalised the property. Hundreds of British Pakistani demonstrators and sympathisers who gathered outside the Indian High Commission to protest against the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir blatantly indulged in acts of vandalism damaging the Indian High Commission’s property.

It is noteworthy to mention that the Congress party has deferred its Bharat Bachao protest march on multiple occasions. In September, Congress had announced a country-wide agitation from 15th to 25th October on these issues. That, too, was announced a month in advance. Then, in October, before the last date of planned protests, i.e. 25th October, expired, Congress announced fresh dates of protests against ‘economic slowdown’.

On 22nd October, Congress said they’d protest across the country in the first week of November. Congress had announced that starting from 5th to 15th November, the party will hold protests across the country and a rally in Delhi. These protests were also for ‘rising unemployment’, ‘sinking economy’ and ‘farmer distress’.

As 5th November flew by, Congress woke up and realised they missed yet another deadline. So on 6th November, they announced new dates of protests, this time, a combined protest with other parties. This time around, Congress announced that they will organise a rally at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi on December 1.

In solidarity with Congress’s Bharat Bachao rally scheduled on December 1, the Indian Overseas Congress, that comprises ‘eminent’ Congress leaders such as Sam Pitroda, infamous for his callous remark- “Hua to Hua” condoning the Congress’ complicity in the 1984 Sikh genocide, will stage a protest on December 14 by gheraoing various Indian embassies in Europe.
