Cong VP to visit Gujarat this week

Ahmed Patel India Tv

The Income Tax department raided the residence of Karnataka Power Minister, and the powerful D.K. Shivakumar and the Eagleton Golf Resort in Bengaluru this morning where 44 Gujarat Congress MLAs are now holed up.

The tax authorities also interrogated for a couple of hours the energy minister, who belongs to Karnataka's ruling Congress party, at a resort in Bengaluru where he is now staying.

"If there was something against D K Shivakumar, look at the timing, he has been a businessman for 30 years and files Income Tax. he has not committed any murder". The I-T department in Bangalore has said in their official statement that the raid is only on DK Shivkumar, but not Eagleton Golf resort or the MLAs.

It is said that this unexpected raid has angered chief minister of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah, who has termed the crackdown as undemocratic.

In another tweet the Congress leader and close aide of Sonia Gandhi said, "BJP is on an unprecedented witch-hunt just to win one Rajya Sabha seat".

The department's director general, however, has refuted the allegations, and said that the searches were planned well in advance. "First they tried to break the Congress ahead of the Rajya Sabha polls in Gujarat".

The Congress alleged political vendetta by the BJP-led government and forced repeated adjournments of the Rajya Sabha which wound up business much ahead of schedule because of continued slogan shouting by Congress members in the House.

"The government is misusing its power by using Central agencies to conduct raids to create atmosphere of fear and pressure in the opposition camp", Solanki said.

Speaking to the reporters, Congress MLA Shailesh Parmar earlier said, "To ensure that BJP is not successful in its mission, 44 of us Congress MLAs are leaving from Gujarat for Bengaluru".
