New Delhi. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Saturday, October 28 targeted the Central Government over the action of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) against the opposition parties.
Kharge told news agency ANI- We have been in politics for 50 years. Before this, ED raids had never taken place during elections. BJP wants to intimidate Congress leaders. We will not be afraid, but will fight. BJP always does this. What they are doing is not right. One day they too will have to face BJP.
BJP wants to spoil Congress elections in Rajasthan
The Congress President alleged that BJP wants to spoil the election of CM Ashok Gehlot in Rajasthan. In fact, on October 26, ED had raided the houses of Congress state president Govind Singh Dotasara in Jaipur and Sikar.
Then summons was sent to CM Ashok Gehlot’s son Vaibhav Gehlot in the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) case. On October 27, Ashok Gehlot had called ED’s action as hooliganism. He said- BJP has spread terror in the country through investigative agencies.
Mamta asked- Why doesn’t the government take action against BJP leaders?
On the other hand, on October 27, ED arrested West Bengal Forest Minister Jyotipriya Malik in the ration scam case. On this, CM Mamata Banerjee said- BJP is playing a dirty political game. What does ED’s raid on opposition leaders across the country before the elections indicate?
Mamta asked a question to BJP- Has ED raided the house of any BJP leader also? BJP says that it wants everyone’s support, everyone’s development. In reality it means everyone’s support, everyone’s destruction. ED is torturing people in the name of investigation and raids. Like the British, BJP is oppressing all those who are against it.
