G20 Summit: Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress, claimed on Saturday that visitors were not being shown the true state of the nation.

Wildlife Concerns and Slum Removal Precede G20 Visit to Rajghat
Rahul Gandhi made his statement the day after the Delhi Police requested assistance from local organisations to reduce the threat of monkeys and dogs in and around Rajghat in central Delhi on Friday, before to the visit of G20 delegates to the Mahatma Gandhi memorial. Numerous slums were reportedly removed by police, who also requested that agencies hire snake catchers. In addition, it was requested that the agency send out personnel to capture dogs and monkeys when the delegates were visiting Rajghat. According to news agency PTI, patrolling was also taking place in the Yamuna Khadar region. Despite the Municipal Corporation of Delhi’s (MCD) denial that the summit was a direct cause of the removal of stray dogs, reports cited them as saying that the animals were only being rounded up “on an urgent need basis.” Gandhi is currently on a nearly week-long tour of Europe, where he will meet with legislators from the European Union (EU), students, and members of the Indian Diaspora.

He said that he hoped that Bharat, or India, had not yet reached a point where democracy and the opposition would no longer exist. Rahul Gandhi claimed on Friday that the administration does not value the leader of 60% of Indians.
