The officials of the Income Tax department on Wednesday morning conducted a raid at AAP legislator Kartar Singh Tanwar’s residence in south Delhi, a party leader said.
“Just in: Income Tax raid on Chhatarpur MLA Kartar Singh Tanwar. Modiji had unleashed Central Bureau of Investigation, Anti-Corruption Bureau, Delhi Police earlier, now IT too, Aam Aadmi Party won’t bow down, won’t bend,” AAP’s Dilip Pandey said in a tweet.
“Disheartened by past performance, Modiji seems to be improving his strike rate now. Almost an AAP MLA everyday, to keep democratic principles away,” the leader said in another tweet.
Referring to the raid, another party leader Sanjay Singh said AAP legislators were being targeted by the Modi government everyday.
“AAP MLA Tanwar’s number came today (Wednesday) morning, let’s see who is targeted till evening,” a sarcastic Mr Singh tweeted.
“Are so many consistent attacks on AAP justified? Are all the criminals of the country in the AAP?” Mr Singh asked.
The raid on Mr Tanwar’s residence will add fuel to the already bitter political war between the AAP and the Modi government.
About a dozen AAP legislators have either been arrested or facing charges in various cases since the party took charge in Delhi on February 14 last year.
