The Congress workers were driven out of the area by a team of state police. While returning from the Raj Bhavan the Congress workers shouted slogans against the misuse of ED to harass Rahul Gandhi. Placards denouncing the act and decrying the BJP government were used by the Congress workers. The police team while trying to snatch the placards confronted the workers.

Earlier K. Meghachandra, denounced the serving of summon notices to Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in a money laundering case, Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC).
The MPCC president said that the Congress party condemns the misuse of government agencies like ED as private agencies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government.
While appealing to ED to remain neutral and treat every case equally, Meghachandra said that utilisation of government agencies and conducting inquiry only against Congress and Opposition parties demean the essence of democracy.
He alleged that ED is being used wrongly in a case that is not related to it at all.
He further appealed to ED not to succumb to the BJP’s dictatorship and added that the country will regress as long as BJP exist.
He then exhorted people to join hands in eliminating BJP from the country.
Congress MLA Th Lokeswar, who also took part in the brief protest, said that the protest was staged to save democracy and Constitution and there will be no democracy and Constitution till eliminating the misrule of the BJP.
