Income Tax raids were conducted at 39 places, including the residence of Karnataka Minister D.K. Shivakumar, and at a private resort owned by Shivakumar near Bengaluru where 44 Congress lawmakers from Gujarat have been staying since last Saturday.
A total of 39 premises of Karnataka minister Shivakumar and his family are being raided by a team of about 120 Income Tax Department officials with the aid of central paramilitary forces, they said.
“As per rule they can’t bring CRPF, it is purely a politically motivated move, shows the mentality of BJP,” he said. “If they have info about irregularities, they have the right.But they are doing with political intention, it is a political vendetta,” he added.
