Congress angry over CBI attack on Karnataka PCC chief DK Shivakumar, says – don’t be afraid, don’t be on your knees
It’s half past one. The operation started around. On the other hand, the Congress party has termed the move as an attempt to influence the preparations for the by-elections. Significantly, with the by-elections to be held in Karnataka on November 3, the Congress party has often complained that the ruling BJP is using the CBI as a ‘weapon’ against the opposition parties.
Karnataka’s Congress president is suspiciously ‘phone being tapped’, the state home minister replied.
Investigators also searched Shivkumar’s house in Sadashivnagar, Bangalore. The house of Uranak’s brother MP DK Suresh, located on the other side of the route, was also searched. These campaigns have been accused of corruption. Officials said the Enforcement Directorate]was investigating money laundering cases based on the Income Tax Department’s action on allegations of tax evasion. At this point he got some input, which he sent to the CBI last year. Now on the basis of this input, this new case has been filed, under which the house of DK Kumar has been raided.

Let the Modi and Yeddyurappa governments and the BJP’s early agencies, the CBI-ED-Income Tax, know that Congress workers and leaders will not bow or bow before such a maneuver.
