IT will summon Karti Chidambaram soon, says CBI

Jaitley

The remarks came after government agencies searched Congress leader P Chidambaram's premises and properties allegedly linked to RJD chief Lalu Prasad.

P. Chidambaram: "The government, using the CBI and other agencies, is targeting my son and his friends".

The agency conducted the raid an FIR was filed against Karti and INX Media among others for alleged irregularities in FIPB clearance given to the media organisation for foreign direct investment (FDI) in 2007. But he would continue to speak and write, he declared. I do not understand why they are conducting raids.

Goyal said the Congress party was feeling "helpless" because of Modi's "massive popularity", and instead of introspecting, it was raising facetious issues. "There is no allegation against me", he said.

The Congress mounted a strong defence of Chidambaram and maintained the CBI raids on premises owned by him and his son Karti in Chennai were part of the BJP's larger design to target and hound political opponents.

"Neither P Chidambaram nor any Congress leader would be deterred or cowed down from fear of the politics of vendetta, " media-in-charge Congress Randeep Surjewala said at a press conference called by the party to counter the BJP government's three-year anniversary.

Russian Federation says US Syria strike an unacceptable violation of sovereignty
The US has been militarily involved in Syria since 2014, but has for the most part avoided engaging directly in the conflict. An earlier chemical weapons attack that killed more than 80 civilians is thought to have been launched from there.

"The truth is that revenge has become a DNA of the BJP".

The Congress leader recalled how Lalu Yadav had played a pivotal role in trying to bring together all the anti-BJP forces in 2004 when the first United Progressive Alliance was formed. He also claimed that Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj allegedly helped people like Lalit Modi who escaped from the country and were wanted by investigative agencies for alleged money laundering.

P Chidambaram has been named in a police complaint in the INX deal, which accuses his son Karti of receiving "consultation charges" after the INX Media won government approval to receive foreign investments.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, demanding an CBI probe in Yadav family's financial dealings saying Yadav, as the Union Railway Minister in the UPA government, indulged in quid pro quo in return of properties in posh localities.

Prasad, however, sought to put up a fearless face, saying he was "not scared at all" and will continue to fight against the "fascist forces". If it tries to silence one Lalu, crores of Lalu will come forward. ED can then also attach assets in the case, said the report. Land worth crores of rupees was grabbed for a pittance.
