New Delhi: Of the Enforcement Directorate’s 5,422 current active cases, 5,310 cases were filed during the last eight years of the Modi government, the Congress’s Ajay Maken claimed on Monday morning ahead of Rahul Gandhi’s fresh round of questioning. As Congress prepares to hit the streets against the centre yet again, Ajay Maken stepped up criticism of the Delhi Police after the party alleged attack on its headquarters last week.
“Only 112 of the Enforcement Directorate’s active cases were filed before the Modi government came to power. You can see the sort of pressure they’re trying to create.” Taking a swipe at the ruling party, Ajay Maken called said the ED was implementing “glow and lovely scheme”, linking it to a popular beauty product that later changed its name.
“The ED and CBI have kept a box of this “glow and lovely” crème and they clearly tell leaders to stop criticising the government. Then their slate is clean.” Yet again taking examples of Maharashtra leader Narayan Rane, and former Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa among others, he said the probe agencies were being misused.
