New Delhi/ Mumbai: Reacting to Income Tax Department’s survey action at BBC offices in New Delhi & Mumbai over alleged irregularities and income concealment, senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Tuesday said that the government is using diversionary tactics to tide over the Adani row.
“We are demanding Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the allegations against Adani and the government is running after BBC. Vinash Kale Viprit Buddhi,” he said in the response video posted by the party.
यहां हम अडानी के मामले में JPC की मांग कर रहे हैं और वहां सरकार BBC के पीछे पड़ी हुई है।

In another tweet, it wrote “First came the BBC documentary, it was banned. Now IT has raided BBC. undeclared emergency.”
Reacting to the raids, Congress’ Gaurav Gogoi tweeted, “At the time India holds the Presidency of the G-20 nations, PM Modi continues to brazenly show India’s slide into authoritarianism and dictatorship. Raids on BBC, clean chit to Adani, tax cuts for rich, people’s homes being bulldozed, inequality and unemployment on the rise.”

Congress leader KC Venugopal, who had accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of running away from answering the questions raised by Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, also tweeted about the raids.
The IT raid at BBC’s offices reeks of desperation and shows that the Modi government is scared of criticism.
We condemn these intimidation tactics in the harshest terms. This undemocratic and dictatorial attitude cannot go on any longer.
