Hitting out at Narendra Modi-led central government, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Sunday said that Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) ongoing interrogation of Robert Vadra, husband of Congress national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, is a political vendetta.
“Where was ED all these five years and it has swung into action at the time when general elections is just round the corner. It clearly indicates political vendetta,’’ he said while talking to media persons here at Chhattisgarh Assembly premises during refresher course of new legislators.
Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh was also present on this occasion.
Regarding suspension of two top police officials of the state, Baghel commented `only dust had been removed from the files at present and so much of chaos had been created’.
Replying to a query whether there will be arrest of former Chief Minister Raman Singh, Baghel said `probe was on at present and nothing could be said at this initial moment’.
