Raman hits back at Cong

BJP national vice president and former chief minister Raman Singh strongly refuted the charges levelled against him by the AICC Spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala at a press conference called in New Delhi on Sunday to condemn IT raids in the state.

Rs Rs It was the BJP, not the incumbent government which initiated probe into the Nagrik Aapurti Nigam (NAN) scam in Chhattisgarh,’’ he said in a clear rebut to Congress charges.

Rs Rs The Baghel government after coming to power constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) which has now took over the case and the truth will come to fore soon,’’ he said.

Rs Rs The raids were ‘normal routine process’ in which locations of some officials were raided. It is really perplexing how come the government becomes destabilised when a few officials are raided”, the BJP leader wondered.

Raman further stated “Just wait for a couple of days, IT officials will provide all details and recovery made during the raid,’’.

Commenting on the allegation of attack on federal structure of the government, the BJP leader further said the state government by their non-cooperating behaviour to the IT officials are themselves violating the federal structure.
