Stop addressing irrelevant issues, respond to Rahul Gandhi’s corruption charges: Shashi Tharoor to PM Modi

The Congress has called for a united opposition meet today to device a strategy against demonetisation and personal corruption charges on Prime Minister Modi.

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Tuesday asked Prime Minster Narendra Modi to respond to the personal corruption charges levelled against him by the party vice-president Rahul Gandhi, instead of addressing irrelevant issues.

“Rahul Gandhi has put something forward. He says that proof is lying with the Income Tax authorities. If the Prime Minister has a different view, he has to refute it. He has not so far addressed the issue. He has only addressed irrelevant side issues. So we ask him to respond to Rahul Gandhi,” Congress leader told ANI.

Lodha’s scalp may open Pandora’s box

Parasmal Lodhas Scalp by Sanjeev Nanda

CHENNAI: The arrest of Kolkata-based realtor Parasmal Lodha by Enforcement Directorate (ED) in Delhi on Thursday sent shivers down the spine of many politicians across parties, along with their `benamis’ and conduits in Tamil Nadu who had financial dealings with him.

Lodha’s arrest is linked to his converting about Rs 25 crore in demonetised currencies into new Rs 2,000 notes for Chennai-based sand mining baron J Shekhar Reddy and Delhi lawyer Rohit Tandon. However, his name had figured during an earlier I-T raid on Karurbased businessman C P Anbunathan in the run-up to the Tamil Nadu assembly elections in April this year.
