Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday accused the Centre of not trusting the academic fraternity in the country and urged students and academics to ask the government why they can “no longer speak to the outside world”.

“Students & academics, Please ask yourself why you are no longer allowed to speak to the outside world. Why doesn’t GOI trust you?” Gandhi questioned in a tweet.

Congress leader and member of Parliament from Wayanad has kept up with his constant attacks on the government over a range of issues like inflation, rise in fuel prices, the border stand-off with China and the arrest of climate activist Disha Ravi.

Gandhi had led the opposition offensive following the arrest of 22-year-old Ravi in the case and said the country will not be silenced.

“Your lips are free to speak. Say that the truth is still alive. They are scared, not the country,” he said in a tweet in Hindi on Friday. “India will not be silenced,” he had said.

Gandhi during his interaction with students in Puducherry on Wednesday had said that people were being arrested in the country “for what they think”. In his reaction to Ravi’s arrest, he said that the nation’s character was being destroyed as people were not being allowed to talk.
