Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that if he does anything wrong, there should be Income Tax raids at his house too.
He stated this at a rally in Sidhi, Madhya Pradesh, where had gone after filing his nomination paper in Varanasi earlier in the day.
Speaking at the rally, he stated that the opposition leaders were accusing the BJP of conducting raids at their houses.
In his speech, the PM referred to the recent raids at the homes of chief minister Kamal Nath’s aides in Madhya Pradesh, raids which he referred to as the ‘Tughlaq Road election scam’, to launch a salvo at the Congress.
“They ask why are raids being conducted at the Congress leaders’ homes. They say ‘we are Congress leaders, why are we being raided?’ The law is the same for everyone,” he said.
“If Modi makes mistakes, there should be income tax raids at Modi’s house too. The law is equal for all,” he stated.
He demanded that the money that had been recovered in the Madhya Pradesh raids at Kamal Nath’s aide’s houses was meant to be used in Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s electoral campaign.
He challenged the Congress of announcing various schemes and committing scams under the guise of those schemes.
He stated that “From Delhi to Bhopal, in Congress, corruption is a symbol of manners. Your chowkidar is alert. Neither the naamdaar nor his ministers will be saved.”
