Congress Demands ₹300 Crore Explanation from Dhiraj Sahu

The Congress has demanded an explanation from Rajya MP Dhiraj Sahu after the income tax authorities discovered over 300 crore hidden at locations reportedly related to him. Jharkhand Congress chairman Avinash Pandey claimed the party had no involvement in the incident because it was personal to him. The BJP, on the other hand, referred to Sahu as Rahul Gandhi’s “friend” and sought explanations from the party.

“He made a statement about how such a large sum of money came to him,” Pandey said to reporters at Ranchi’s Birsa Munda airport.

“The party has a clear-cut stand that it is a private matter of Dhiraj Sahu, which has nothing to do with the Congress party,” he went on to say.

He went on to say that the rural liquor baron’s family had been running the company for over 100 years and that the Congress MP was only a part of it. “But Sahu should clarify how such a big amount came to him,” he said.

According to BJP MLA CP Singh, the Congress wants to protect Sahu’s bosses.

“Is Sahu Congress a party or an independent?” “If he runs as an Independent, he can claim that the party has nothing to do with him,” he remarked.

Union minister G Kishan Reddy described Sahu as a close friend of Rahul Gandhi.

“From Rahul Gandhi’s close friend and Rajya Sabha MP Dheeraj Sahu’s offices, around ₹200 crore was seized by I-T…I want to ask Rahul Gandhi, why haven’t you posted anything about this on social media? Why haven’t you spoken anything about this? Because Congress always supports corruption,” he added.

BJP MP K Laxman questioned Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi’s silence over the issue. “Where there is a Congress Government, only corruption is there….PM Modi has a vision of zero tolerance against corruption… PM Modi will not leave the corruption and soon the Congress will be exposed,” he said.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah stated that the BJP has been pursuing the Congress.

“They are targeting Congress. Let them raid the residence of BJP leaders. It’s wrong if unaccounted money is recovered from anyone’s house according to the IT act. Let them take action against him (Dhiraj Sahu), we don’t have any objection but why do they only target Congress leaders and not the BJP?” he added.
