The Congress will hold a peaceful protest across the country on Monday against the central government's alleged "vendetta politics," as Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is slated to appear before the ED for the fourth round of questioning.

The ED questioned the Wayanad MP from June 13 to 15, despite objections from party officials and workers.

Gandhi had been summoned by the ED to appear again on Friday (June 17), but he requested that he be excused and a fresh date be set on Monday (June 20).

Later, the probe agency issued fresh summons to Rahul Gandhi to join the investigation on Monday, granting his request to consider deferring his questioning from June 17 to June 20 citing his mother and Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi's health condition.
