ED on Saturday raided homes and offices of former Union minister P. Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram, who is a businessman and Congress member. The raids were in connection to the Aircel-Maxis money laundering case against Karti Chidambaram. P. Chidambaram termed the raids “a comedy of errors” and he claimed the officers were embarrassed as they could not find anything.
The Congress criticised the raids and accused the NDA government. They said this is a vendetta unleashed against Opposition.
Congress Party’s communications chief Randeep Singh Surjewala said, “PM Modi is making ED/CBI puppets and made them act according to his whims and fancies. He is using them to settle political scores and intimidate opposition parties.
He said the Congress, will not be cowed down by these attempts.
