On Monday, Congress National General Secretary and the party’s Rajasthan in-charge Ajay Maken accused BJP of using investigative agencies for their own political benefits.
Earlier that day, BJP claimed that the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation and the Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust received donations from organizations associated with Mehul Choksi, Rana Kapoor, Jignesh Shah and Zakir Naik. All of these leaders are accused & being held for money laundering charges.
Responding to a question on the BJP’s demand of a probe by the Enforcement Directorate in donations received by the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, Maken answered, “We have seen in Rajasthan and other states that BJP is using ED and CBI for its own political benefits.”
“The ED doesn’t come first. If anyone knows the law, ED comes when discrepancies, if there is any, found by any other agency. It has to be identified and proved by any other agency and then only ED comes,” he added. Meanwhile, he displayed his content over the state government’s progress, saying that it has delivered 60-70% points from the manifesto.
“Ministers have submitted department wise reports on promises made in the manifesto. I am happy and satisfied. If any government achieves 60-70 per cent of its manifesto, then I understand that it is a good speed,” Mr Maken assured the reporters at a press conference.
He chaired a meeting with party leaders at the state Congress headquarters to acknowledge their feedback. Maken said that the party would present its accomplishment of fulfilling manifesto promises and other things in front of the state’s general public on October 2.
“I along with the state party chief will also hold a meeting every month here to discuss the report and feedback submitted by district in-charge ministers for taking decisions to strengthen the organization,” Maken informed via a press conference.
On Tuesday, leaders of six administrative districts of Jaipur will take part in an assemblage for better coordination between the government and the organization.
