National Herald office

Days after the Enforcement Directorate’s questioning Congress president in the Nation Heral money laundering case, the probe agency on Tuesday reportedly conducted searches at multiple places, including the newspaper’s headquarters at Delhi’s Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg.

The ED has raided around 12 locations including the offices of the newspaper in Delhi and several other premises linked to Associated Journals Limited (AJL), the company that runs the National Herald newspaper founded by India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

This came days after questioning Gandhi in an alleged money laundering case in which she had appeared for three rounds of questioning amid massive protests across the nation by Congress workers.

The ED had also questioned Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in June for nearly 50 hours over 5 days.

Hitting back at the government, the Congress party said that the opposition’s questioning on crucial issues like inflation, and unemployment had put the government on the back foot. They are unable to answer the people of the country so they are trying to humiliate and blackmail those who are asking uncomfortable questions, Congress said.

The Gandhis are being investigated in an alleged National Herald money laundering case involving the Young Indian’s takeover of Associated Journals Limited (AJL).

The ED said the Young Indian also took over Rs 800 crore in assets of the AJL. Denying any wrongdoing in the case, the Congress said that the Young Indian is a not-for-profit organization and so, there can be no question of money laundering.

The Congress leaders and workers have organized protests across the country against the questioning of the top leaders of the party. They allege the case is politically motivated and the Centre is using probe agencies for political vendetta.

The grand old party on Saturday launched an attack on Union Minister Smriti Irani as they uploaded a video of her being questioned by Bharatiya Janata Party’s worker over the LPG prices. A BJP worker was pleading for respite in LPG prices from the Union Minster Smriti Irani which was recorded in a video.

In the video, a woman can be seen standing in front of BJP’s Smriti Irani and asking her for relief in inflating LPG prices. The woman can be heard talking about her own struggle in tackling the issue as she stated that she has 3 daughters and claimed that there has been a rampant increase in inflation which translated to the increase in prices of LPG.

Watch video here:

The woman can further be heard saying due to inflation she is forced to work and by the end, she pleaded for some relief in LPG prices. Union Minister Smriti Irani can be seen patiently and discerningly listening to her plea to the government. The BJP workers, present at the program can also be seen applauding the question in a form of solidarity.

The Congress uploaded the video with a Tweet where the grand old party also wrote and highlighted the irony of Smriti Irani’s protest against the LPG prices back when they were 400 Rs. The grand old party further added that now she is silent, implying that the Union Minister has failed to bring respite despite now being in power

Smriti Irani vs Congress

The attack by the grand old party comes amidst the ongoing row over Rahul Gandhi’s aarti form for which the former Congress President, Rahul Gandhi, got trolled by some in the BJP including Union Minister Smriti Irani.

BJP’s Smriti Irani had stirred up a conversation over the form of Rahul Gandhi’s Aarti where he can be seen performing the Aarti anti-clockwise. The Union Minister added to the trolling and criticism of Gandhi as she edited Rahul Gandhi’s Aarti Photo during the Bharat Jodo Yatra and rotated it to make it look like it is a clockwise motion.

Irani, in her tweet, also slyly described the photo of the Congress MP to look fine after her editing. The grand old party was infuriated by the Irani’s tweets as they dug up a video of Modi performing Aarti in a similar way to retort to BJP’s claims.

Delhi Excise Policy case: CBI has given clean chit to Manish Sisodia, claims CM Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday while addressing a press conference said that yesterday the CBI filed the charge sheet. The CBI chargesheet does not include Manish Sisodia’s name in it. So in way, a clean chit has been given to him, Kejriwal said.

Attacking the BJP without naming the party, CM Kejriwal said that all the tactics were adopted but no evidence was found. The Delhi CM added had they found evidence, he would have been arrested.

Watch the press conference here:

In the press conference, CM Arvind Kejriwal said that all the investigations have been done. Searched everywhere but could not find anything against Manish Sisodia. PM Modi will continue to get us investigated for the rest of his life, but the investigation done till date did not find any irregularity. The Prime Minister was personally monitoring this case, my sources have confirmed this, but he could not do anything, Kejriwal said. These fanatics cannot harm honest people. I can say that I am brutally honest, but I challenge that no BJP person can say this.

He also said in his press conference that PM Modi works for 18 hours, but most of his time, he dedicates to the blame-game. If we work properly even for two hours, then the inflation in the country will come down. Along with this, Kejriwal said on the Satyendra Jain video leak case that the election of MCD is now becoming clear, now the public has to decide whether they want 10 development works of Arvind Kejriwal or 10 BJP released videos.

I was being defamed falsely – Manish Sisodia

Earlier, Delhi’s Deputy CM Manish Sisodia had said that today I understood from the CBI charge sheet, I was being defamed falsely. Now shouldn’t the BJP remove the LG and the Chief Secretary? The PM of the country dreams of trapping the opposition by misusing the CBI throughout the day, the PM should apologize to the country. Satyendar Jain will also come out clean in the same way.
