Move Not motivated, says BJP

It is natural to investigate these transactions after so much info was recently brought out in public domain… Govt would not have waited for six years if politics was behind probe. —P Muralidhar Rao, BJP National Gen Secy

The panel, headed by a special director of the Enforcement Directorate (ED), has been tasked with coordinating investigations into alleged violation of various provisions under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), Income Tax Act and Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA) by these organisations, an MHA spokesperson said. This comes in the backdrop of recent allegations levelled by the ruling BJP on the Congress and the Gandhi family, claiming China had funded the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation. — TNS
