Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday asserted that agencies like the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) were working impartially and barring only two, most of the cases being probed by the erstwhile United Progressive Alliance (UPA) ) was recorded during Govt. Shah said at a media conclave held in New Delhi that whatever the investigative agencies are doing can be challenged in the courts.
He said, during the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections held in 2017, a senior woman leader of the Congress had said that if she was involved in corruption, why was there no investigation. She was questioning us. Now when action is being taken, they are creating ruckus. The Union Home Minister said that these investigating agencies are not above the law and any notice, FIR and charge sheet can be challenged in the courts.
Why are they shouting outside instead of going to the court? I want to ask the public that if there are allegations of corruption against anyone, should it not be investigated? All these cases except two were registered during his regime and not during our government. Shah said that when there were allegations of a Rs 12 lakh crore scam during the 10-year rule of the Congress-led UPA government, the government had registered a case through the CBI to calm the situation. If there is a case of money laundering, then ED is bound to investigate it.
