‘They have unleashed terror in country’; Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot targets BJP after ED action


Jaipur, Oct 26 : Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Thursday slammed the BJP after the ED summoned his son Vaibhav and raided the premises of the Congress state president Govind Singh Dotasra, saying terror had been unleashed in the country.

He claimed that Enforcement Directorate (ED) raids happen wherever elections are held. Be it Chhattisgarh, Karnataka or Pradesh, ED raids happened just before elections, the chief minister said.

“Raids happened but the Congress won the elections. The situation is worrisome. They have unleashed terror in the country,” Gehlot told reporters at a press conference here.

Asserting that the Congress “will not be scared no matter how hard they try”, he alleged the BJP was targeting him through ED raids as they could not topple his government.

“We will win the election,” the Rajasthan chief minister asserted.

Citing data, Gehlot said that 112 searches by the ED happened during 10 years of the UPA rule and charge sheets were filed in 104 cases. But after 2014, as many as 3,010 raids happened and charge sheets were filed in 881 cases, he said.

Congress state in-charge Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa and state ministers Mahesh Joshi and Pratap Singh Khachariyawas were among those present at the press conference.

The Enforcement Directorate on Thursday raided the premises of Rajasthan Congress president Govind Singh Dotasra and Omprakash Hudla, the party's candidate from Mahua assembly seat, as part of a money-laundering probe into the alleged exam paper leak case in the poll-bound state.

The federal probe agency has also summoned Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's son Vaibhav Gehlot for questioning in a case related to alleged contravention of the foreign exchange law.

After the raids, Congress workers sat on a dharna in Sikar and Jaipur and raised slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
