New Delhi, Nov 30 : Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Ahmed Patel accused the Modi government of using CBI and ED to attack the Opposition leaders and said that Finance Minister who mocked former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh are now struggling to deal with the economic slowdown.
“Former Finance Minister Mr P Chidambaram’s continued detention is nothing but a witch-hunt of the worst kind. It’s a national shame how institutions are succumbing to this pressure Fact is, people who run this government don’t care if economic growth falls to 4.5% or 0.5% ,” Patel said.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) against Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister P Chidambaram in the INX Media case smell more like a witch hunt under political duress.
“They are least interested in these things, they have only one agenda – silence contrarian voices & the opposition 4.5% ! Some ppl who made a career by mocking Dr Manmohan Singh ji are now struggling to oversee the economy #EconomicSlowdown,” Congress leader said.
