The Hindu Business Line - - NEWS -

In­come Tax of­fi­cials searched prop­er­ties of CM Ramesh, Tel­ugu De­sam party leader, on Fri­day. The op­er­a­tions were con­ducted at his houses and other prop­er­ties in Kadapa dis­trict, Andhra Pradesh; and Hy­der­abad. Con­firm­ing the search, Ramesh, a Ra­jya Sabha MP, said it was “a po­lit­i­cal and vin­dic­tive move” by the Modi gov­ern­ment as his party left the NDA al­liance. “I am at the fore­front of fight­ing for peo­ple’s rights in the State, in a mat­ter re­lated to set­ting up a steel plant in my dis­trict, Kadapa,” he said.

He said he had noth­ing to hide or fear and he will not be af­fected by such in­tim­i­dat­ing tac­tics. The MP, presently in New Delhi, said, “I have told the I-T of­fi­cials that I have no ob­jec­tion, but the due pro­ce­dure should be fol­lowed, es­pe­cially in Te­lan­gana.” He said that he had no faith in of­fi­cials from Te­lan­gana and wanted in­de­pen­dent wit­nesses to be present.
