On Monday, a senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge has attacked BJP after the IT (Income Tax) Department raided several locations, including the residence of Ashwin Sharma. He is an associate of Praveen Kakkar, and OSD to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath.
Mr. Kharge told sources, “Conducting raids at the residences of Chief Minister’s private secretary, secretaries…Congress is not scared of these things. Congress is ready to face challenges but they (BJP) want to win by misusing their power. People will teach them a lesson.”
The veteran Congress leader continued, “Whatever is happening in Madhya Pradesh, it is being done out of vengeance. By threatening like this during elections, Centre is trying to create an environment of fear among our workers. Modi ji does this, so I said ED and IT department are being misused.”
Earlier in the day, the IT officials said that they will conduct raids at several locations in Madhya Pradesh.
