Sanjay Raut attacks Modi govt, says no I-T searches in BJP-ruled states


Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Sunday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government at the Center over the Income Tax raids against the leaders of the MVA government in Maharashtra alleging political vendetta.

The Shive Sena MP alleged that the Central agency is carrying out raids against their leaders in view of the Municipal elections in the state.”I think there’s Income and Tax only in Maharashtra, no Income and Tax in BJP-ruled states. Municipal Corporation polls are here, so central agencies have worked only in Maharashtra and West Bengal; no work in the rest of India.

All is well there,” ANI quoted Raut as saying.”We are noting all these things. We are watching, the public is watching too. Let them do it. Let them find out what they are searching for. They will keep searching,” he added.

His remarks come a day after the Income Tax (I-T) department on Friday conducted searches at the premises of Shiv Sena corporator Yashwant Jadhav in Mumbai on charges of tax evasion.

Meanwhile, the tax raid continues for the third day on the premises of Jadhav, who is also the Standing Committee chairperson of BMC. The I-T searches come ahead of the high-stake Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) election.

The Shive Sena leader also talked about the assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh and claimed that Samajwadi Party will be able to form the government in the state after the elections. “Aaditya Thackeray had been to UP.

I think there is going to be a change in UP. People have made up their minds. In the atmosphere we saw, there is a neck-to-neck fight. The support for Akhilesh Yadav shows the change,” Raut said.
