Story Highlights

  • The raid comes amidst the fog of speculations in the recent raid at Kanpur.

Lucknow: The IT department on Friday raided opposition Samajwadi Party’s Pushparaj ‘Pampi’ Jain. The raid was conducted after the tax raid at UPs business man unearthed eye-popping piles of cash.

The raid was held at around 50 locations in UP, Delhi, Mumbai linked to the businessman who owns perfumery, cold storage and petrol pumps. Coming in the middle of high-pitch election campaigns, the raids have garnered huge political attention with BJP and Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party accusing each other.

Tweets from the opposition gained huge mileage from the opposition. It read- “After a huge failure last time, this time BJP’s ultimate ally IT (Income Tax Department) has finally raided the place of SP MLC Shri Pushp Raj Jain and other perfume traders of Kannauj. Openly misuse of central agencies by scared BJP is common in UP elections. People are watching everything, they will answer by vote.”

Sources from the Directorate General of GST Intelligence (DGGI), however, junked the mistaken identity theory. They have said they received specific inputs regarding alleged tax evasion by the Shikhar Pan Masala group. A probe led them to transport company Ganapati Road Carriers and Piyush Jain’s Odochem Industries, the sources said.
