ED raids on Congress leaders ahead of party’s plenary session in Raipur sparks political uproar
Raipur: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has conducted raids on the various locations of Congress leaders, heating up politics from Chhattisgarh to Delhi. Chief minister Bhupesh Baghel addressed the press on this issue, with State incharge Kumari Selija and PCC Chief Mohan Markam.
Adressing the media persons, PCC Chief Mohan Markam informed about the ED’s search and seizure operations on opposition parties and said that they would not back down. He stated that the Modi government is not investigating the Adani case, and raids are not happening where they should. The Modi government is killing democracy.
Kumari Selija stated that the BJP is afraid of the Congress, especially how they are adopting repressive policies. They do not let the opposition voice be heard, whether inside or outside Parliament. The opposition voice is suppressed so that they do not speak against their own people. This can be dangerous at any level.
She added that the entire state of Chhattisgarh is happy that the historic Congress plenary session is taking place in Raipur. This is why these people are afraid. Congress is always targeted, and it is the reason why. It has been raided 24 times. We are not afraid of them, but we will continue to raise our voice louder and stronger than ever before.
“They do not have confidence in their democracy, nor in the Parliament. Investigation agencies are being misused. The world is watching. The media’s voice is also suppressed. Media houses are being bought by big people. Congress will not allow the voices of common people to be silenced”, she said.
Meanwhile, days before the plenary session of Congress which is going to be held in Raipur, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has conducted raids at the residences of several Congress leaders in the state. The action was initiated by the ED early in the morning, and chief minister Baghel held a press conference regarding the matter at the CM House. Additionally, at 11 am, thousands of Congress workers gathered outside the ED office in Pachpedi Naka to stage a protest.
