Entire opposition against IT action on BBC! Cong-SP surrounded govt together

New Delhi: With the Income Tax department raiding the offices of controversial British media agency BBC in Delhi and Mumbai, opposition leaders on Tuesday attacked the Center saying the government has gone after the BBC. Opposition parties including the Congress have said that we have even demanded a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the allegations leveled against the Adani group in the report by US-based firm Hindenburg Research and the government has reached out to the BBC offices.

The BBC's offices in Delhi and Mumbai were "raided" by Income Tax officials, weeks after the BBC released a two-part documentary on PM Narendra Modi 'India: The Modi Question'. After this, all the opposition including the Congress has become an attacker on the central government. Congress National General Secretary Jairam Ramesh has said, 'Here, we are demanding JPC inquiry on Adani issue, but the government is after BBC.' Let us tell you that the Adani-Hindenburg case is currently in the Supreme Court, and it is going to be investigated under the supervision of the court.  

At the same time, former Jammu and Kashmir CM and PDP supremo Mehbooba Mufti while attacking the central government said, 'The cause and effect of the raid on BBC office are very clear. Be it opposition leaders, media, activists, or anyone else, the Government of India is shamelessly harassing those who speak the truth.' She said, 'The price of fighting for the truth is being paid.' At the same time, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav has called it an ideological emergency.

At the same time, in response to a question related to seeing the Adani controversy as a conspiracy, just after the BBC documentary, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said in an interview, 'These people have been following Modiji since 2002, but every time Modiji has become cleaner and more popular.'
