Mysuru, August 7:- “The Income Tax department raid at the residences and office of Energy minister D K Shivakumar is ‘vendetta’ politics by the Modi-led central government,” said H A Venkatesh, chairman of Mysuru Paints and Varnish Limited (MPVL), at a press meet held in the city on Monday.
“The raid on Shivakumar was conducted as he was taking care of the Gujarat Congress MLAs in the state. It is a clear attempt to attack the state government and the minister,” he alleged.
“Central government is misusing the investigation agencies and I-T department for their personal gain. Neither the party nor Minister Shivakumar is frightened by such raids,” Venkatesh added.
