Addressing a gathering earlier, Mr. Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of destroying institutions, including the CBI, the Election Commission of India and the Enforcement Directorate.

Senior Congress leaders, including Ashok Gehlot, Ahmed Patel, Motilal Vora, Veerappa Moily and Anand Sharma, took part in the march that culminated in the demonstration in front of the CBI headquarters.
