Amarinder Singh lashes out at Jaitley after Income Tax department's complaint

News Agencies | Updated on: Fri, 10 Feb 2017 01:38:00 IST

Former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh today lashed out at Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, after the Income Tax Department filed a prosecution complaint against him in a foreign tax evasion case.

"I challenged @arunjaitley to fight by-elections in Amritsar and this is how he responds. So predictable!", Singh tweeted.

Earlier in June, the Enforcement Directorate issued summons to Amarinder's son Raninder Singh for allegedly violating the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).

Dubbing the summons as "fraud notice", Amarinder had alleged that Jaitley was behind it.

"This is total fraud notice. This issue of income tax and all has been done by Jaitley, he can't get over his defeat," said Amarinder.

Amarinder, who will lead the Punjab Congress in the upcoming assembly elections eyeing the Chief Minister seat, recently resigned from his Lok Sabha membership in protest against the Supreme Court order on the Sutlej Yamuna Link canal issue.
