Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who is facing an ED investigation in the National Herald case, said on Thursday that he is not afraid of the Modi government. Rahul, while talking to media persons outside his house here, said, 'We will not run, nor are we afraid of Narendra Modi. Let them do what he wants.
