Members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will demonstrate at the Gandhi statue in Parliament on Monday in opposition to the Income Tax Department’s ongoing raids that have resulted in the seizure of cash from several locations connected to Congress MP Dheeraj Sahu. The incident has given the BJP more justification to attack the opposition Congress, and they are doing everything in their power to do so. Meenakashi Lekhi, a BJP leader and union minister, addressed the matter on Saturday, claiming that the Congress has attempted to pass corruption down from generation to generation.
“The amount of cash recovered from Dheeraj Sahu’s premises is the highest among corrupt people so far. Its amount has reached Rs 300 crore…Congress has tried to spread corruption from generation to generation,” said Meenakashi Lekhi.
Earlier on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on his X handle, tagging a news report about the I-T department recovering Rs 200 crore in cash from various locations of a business group allegedly linked to Sahu, took a swipe at the opposition party.
On Sunday, the Income Tax Department persisted in conducting raids on Boudh Distilleries Private Limited’s premises. Additionally, CISF officers were stationed on the property. Over Rs 200 crore worth of cash was found in multiple locations in Odisha and Jharkhand by Income Tax investigators during raids against Boudh Distilleries Private Limited (BDPL) and its associated entities.
