A day after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was disqualified from the Lok Sabha, he in his first press conference said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central government was scared of his questions on Adani and that democracy was under attack.

Meanwhile,  Lok Sabha Secretariat gave notice to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to vacate government bungalow. The allotment of the government bungalow will be cancelled with effect from 23.04.2023.
