The Income Tax Department raided BBC offices in Delhi and Mumbai. Minister KTR responded to this. He said that the attacks are taking place after the broadcast of a BBC documentary on Prime Minister Modi.
“It was a laughable matter for the investigative agencies to become puppets of the saffron party. ED attacks on Hindenburg after IT attacks on BBC?” He tweeted to this effect.
“What a surprise!! A few weeks after the BBC aired a documentary on Prime Minister Modi, BBC India is being raided by the IT department,” he wrote.
He said that it is ridiculous that investigative agencies like IT, CBI, and ED have become big puppets of the BJP. What’s next? ED attacks on Hindenburg or a hostile takeover attempt? He satirically said so.
