Govt trying to tarnish image of Cong: Adhir Ranjan

New Delhi, : Senior Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury accused the central government of tarnishing the image of the Congress party and said that the government was misusing the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for this purpose.  While talking to the media in the Parliament House complex on Wednesday, Chaudhary said that the central government is trying to silence Congress on the pretext of the National Herald. But Congress party is not going to sit silently on the issues of the general public. At this time, the government is using ED as a weapon against the entire opposition, including Congress.
It is noteworthy that the ED on Tuesday raided the headquarters of the Congress-owned National Herald newspaper here and 11 other places as part of a money laundering probe. The ED had also questioned Congress President Sonia Gandhi and former President Rahul Gandhi in the same case.
