AAP MLA Kartar Singh Tanwar on I-T radar: Govt does not work with vendetta, says MoS Finance
An Income Tax department raid has led to the recovery of an alleged unaccounted wealth of Rs 130 crore with AAP MLA Kartar Singh Tanwar.
New Delhi: In what could spell more trouble for the Aam Aadmi Party, reports on Tuesday said that an Income Tax department raid led to the recovery of an alleged unaccounted wealth of Rs 130 crore with AAP MLA Kartar Singh Tanwar.
The AAP has termed the raids as "witch-hunt" by the BJP-led NDA government.
However, Minister of State for Finance Arjun Ram Meghwal rejected the charges of vendetta behind income tax raids, saying any lawmaker doing illegal things will have to face legal scrutiny.
"This government does not work with the vendetta," he told reporters when asked to comment on I-T raids against Tanwar.
"If any MLA or MP of any party does illegal things, then whatever is the legal course he has to face that," he said.
Meghwal said his government holds no "grudge" against anyone.
The Chhatarpur MLA's farm house and offices were raided by income tax officials in July.
