New Delhi, Mar. 2 (ANI): The Congress Party on Wednesday dared the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA Government to initiate proceedings against former union minister P. Chidambaram’s son Karti, but said that it must not be done with the motive of revenge.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told ANI, “We are for the first time witnessing that the ruling party and its allies are not allowing the Parliament to function. The reason is very obvious that the Prime Minister’s role is under suspicion following the controversy over the Gujarat land deals or be Rohith Vemula’s issue or the BJP’s anti-Dalit mindset or the attempt made on Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani’s part to mislead the Parliament, these all issues and the anti-people budget.”
“The BJP does not want these issues to be raised in the Parliament and hence is not allowing the parliamentary proceedings to take place,” he added.
Karti Chidambaram has rubbished allegations in a newspaper that he had built a huge business empire for himself, saying his business was fully compliant with all laws and regulations of the country.
He has also rejected the charges of money laundering
“One newspaper has made allegations against me, which have been adequately refuted in the past. Myself and my business are fully compliant with all laws and regulations,” the AICC member, allegations against whom led to stalling of Parliament yesterday said, in a statement.
The AIADMK, which raised this issue in the Parliament yesterday, stalled proceedings in both Houses of Parliament and demanded against Karti.
The AIADMK MPs also displayed copies of the leading English daily, which claimed in a report that raids by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Income Tax had revealed Karti’s investments in real estate deals as part of a “huge business empire” across the world.
The AIADMK’s move came in the backdrop of assembly polls later this year in Tamil Nadu. (ANI)
