When asked about Gandhi's statement, Raut told reporters here, "What he said is true. We have said the same thing in different words. It is like strangulating the country's democracy with the help of central probe agencies"

Continuing his attack on the Union government, Raut said, "One can see a campaign against the people who speak against the Union government. It is not good for democracy. The people in our country are scared and not ready to speak the truth. Anyone who speaks against the Union government faces a series of probes from the central agencies.
