The Congress Party on 13 January dubbed the Enforcement Directorate (ED) raids on P. Chidambaram's premises as a "malicious vendetta" by Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government against its senior leaders.
"Not surprised by the malicious vendetta being unleashed against senior Congress leaders including P. Chidambaram and his son," Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told ANI.
He also added that Prime Minister Modi and his government use ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as "captive puppies".
"Everyday Prime Minister Modi and his government use ED and CBI as captive puppets to seek revenge from opposition," he added.
Earlier in the day, The Enforcement Directorate (ED) conducted a raid at former union minister P. Chidambaram's son Karti Chidambaram's homes in Delhi and Chennai in the Aircel-Maxis case.
Congress leader and former finance minister P. Chidambaram to this said that the ED officials found nothing during the raid at his son's Karti Chidambaram's residence, therefore, took away a few documents to justify themselves.
