TMC states ED action on Sanjay Raut as BJP’s ‘vendetta politics’
On Sunday, July 31, the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC criticized the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) move against Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, calling it “vendetta politics” and an effort by the governing BJP-led Central government to silence “alternative voices.”
“This is an attempt to stifle opposition voices both inside and outside Parliament. Inside Parliament, you (BJP-led Centre) get opposition MPs suspended and outside, you use central agencies to threaten opposition leaders,” TMC MP Santanu Sen was quoted as saying by PTI. “The raid on Sanjay Raut’s residence is a reflection of vendetta politics,” the TMC leader added.
