ED Raids on residences of Mr P Chidambaram reflect ‘vicious vendetta’ of Modi govt: Cong
New Delhi, Jan 13 : Terming the raids by the enforcement directorate on the residences of party leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram in New Delhi and Chennai as reflection of ‘vicious vendetta’ of the Narendra Modi government against Congress and other opposition leaders, the Congress on Saturday said it would not be cowed down in face of such malicious and willful attempts to browbeat, bulldoze or overawe.
Racting to the ED raid, Mr Chidambaram, asserting that there was no FIR against him or his son in the Aircel Maxis case, charged the Government of misusing the ED and said he would “neither bend nor break” and would continue to speak and write.
‘Hurriedly conducted Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) raids at the Delhi and Chennai residences of former Finance Minister and senior Congress leader, P. Chidambaram have once again exposed the continuing vicious vendetta unleashed by Modi government against Congress and other opposition leaders. Stark truth is that Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and his government are using agencies like ED/CBI as captive puppets to settle political scores and intimidate political opponents. In fact, ‘Raid Raj’ has become the ‘DNA’ of Modi government.
