"Union Government is carrying out vendetta politics in Andhra Pradesh on behalf of his B-team Jaganmohan Reddy. This IT raid against Jayadev is because he called on Prime Minister in Lok Sabha. He is now being agonized just before elections. Jayadev is one of the highest income taxpayers in Andhra Pradesh," said Dinakar.

Speaking to media, the TDP MP said, "Why I am being targeted? Why is the TDP being targeted? A deliberate attempt by PM to influence polls. Moving towards the state of Emergency and fascism," Mr. Galla said. "Why is TDP being targeted in Andhra Pradesh? If EC and all government agencies are working impartially it should be happening to people of all parties. This is an attempt by the government to influence the elections. We are moving towards a state of emergency in the country," he added.

According to a TDP leader familiar with the development, the Income Tax department authorities conducted the raids in Guntur town at around 6 pm. Addressing the media, Naidu had said, "It is not only Prime Minister Narendra Modi but also Jaganmohan Reddy and K Chandrashekhar Rao who are acting vindictively against the state. Modi has betrayed us; he did not fulfill his promise. When we question him, he harasses us with ED and CBI raids.
