Venugopal Salvos BJP on ED and CBI Raids in CG

RAIPUR: AICC General Secretary KC Venugopal on Tuesday slammed the ED raids on party leaders in CG as a ‘political vendetta’. ” We are not afraid of anyone. We follow Indian law. PM Modi and BJP should not be under the pretext that Congress will get scared by ED and CBI. We will fight according to the law of India, he said addressing reporters at Swami Vivekananda Airport.

While firing salvos at BJP, he clearly mentioned that the opposition won’t be successful in intimidating them through the misuse of ED and CBI.

Meanwhile, members of the Congress in CG staged a protest in front of the ED’s office in the state capital Raipur against the raids.

The ED on Monday raided a dozen locations including premises linked to state Congress leaders as part of an ongoing probe into the alleged coal levy scam. Premises linked to two Congress MLAs Devendra Yadav in Bhilai (Durg district) and Chandradev Prasad Rai in Sarangarh-Bilaigarh district, Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee treasurer Ramgopal Agrawal, chairman of Chhattisgarh Mineral Development Corporation Girish Dewangan, chairman of Chhattisgarh State Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board Sushil Sunny Agrawal and party’s state spokesperson RP Singh in Raipur are being aggressively searched.
