Rahul Gandhi has said that he will not be intimidated by Narendra Modi . “Kar le jo karna hai (let them do whatever they want to), we won't be silenced." he told reporters on August 4.

Gandhi was speaking about the ED action in the National Herald issue. According to him, it was an attempt to intimidate him. “They think they can silence me up by intimidating me a bit," Gandhi said while referring to the Central government. “We’ll keep resisting what Mr Narendra Modi and Mr Amit Shah have been doing in this country."

He has claimed that, because Congress is not afraid of Narendra Modi, it won't be intimidated. Whatever Modi or Shah does, Congress will carry out its duties in order to safeguard the country, democracy, and contribute to the maintenance of peace, he said.

Later in the Parliament House the reporters surrounded him again to question the barricading put up around his house and the Congress headquarters, to which Congress Vice President responded, “they can do whatever they have to, truth can't be barricaded."
