Several protests are being staged across the country including protests by Congress volunteers when Rahul Gandhi went to the Enforcement Directorate in Delhi for investigation where the protestors are detained, protest against the demolition of Muslim houses and against BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma in various states including Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand, as well as protest against the Agnipath scheme by the army aspirants in Bihar.
In this situation, the national coordinator of the Congress party, Ritu Choudhary, has raised questions like ‘Who are these people in police uniform?’ and ‘if they are policemen, where are their name plates and badges?’ along with some photos on Twitter.
சங்கிகள் போலீஸ் வேடத்தில் புகுந்தனரா.? பாஜகவின் கொடுங்கோல் ஆட்சியின் அட்டகாசமா..? உண்மையை அழிக்க நினைப்பவர்கள் அழிவார்கள் என்பதே உண்மை.. ஆன்மீகம் நிறைந்த இந்திய திருநாட்டை கொள்ளையர்களும் கொலைகாரர்களும் பொய்யர்களும் ஆள முடியாது. அவர்களின் அழிவு வெகு விரைவில்.

The photos have gone viral on social media, quoting that some of the guards did not have badges on their clothes, claiming that RSS and BJP members had infiltrated the guards and many of them started believing that the photos were taken in Delhi.
But the guards in the photos are from Kerala. Kerala Police badges on their clothes can be seen. Various protests have been going on in Kerala for the last few days.
