Speaking of the observations made by the court, Jairam said that the court’s remarks are evidence of ED being unprofessional and dancing on the fingers of PM Modi and Amit Shah

Mumbai: Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Wednesday took a swipe at Enforcement Directorate over Sanjay Raut’s Patra Chawl Scam Case. He claimed that in the case the PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act) court has made scathing observations on the ‚Äėbehavior‚Äô of the ED.

Speaking of the observations made by the court, he said that the court’s remarks are evidence of ED being unprofessional and dancing on the fingers of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. He said, “The remarks passed by the court give ample evidence to show the ED is not an independent and professional organization but one that dances to the tune of prime minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah.”

He added that even Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and Sharad Pawar were targeted by the ED.

Making allegations on ED he said, “They are being used to intimidate and target political opponents of the Bharatiya Janata Party”

“The PMLA court has passed a scathing observation on ED behavior. It is not an independent organization and is being used to intimidate, spread fear, and target political opponents of the BJP,” Ramesh said.

Ramesh further stated that Raut has suffered the price for being a staunch critic of the prime minister.

“I have no doubt that he (Sanjay Raut) will continue to expose the Centre’s techniques of instilling fear and intimidation among political opponents.”

On Wednesday evening Sanjay Raut and his associate Pravin Raut were released from Arthur Road. A special PMLA court granted them bail on Wednesday afternoon.

Special Judge MG Deshpande, granting bail to Sanjay Raut and his aid Pravin Raut, observed: ‚ÄúI¬†hold¬†that¬†both¬†accused¬†are¬†basically¬†arrested illegally.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúSimply labeling pure civil disputes with ‚Äėmoney¬≠ laundering‚Äô or ‚ÄėEconomic Offence‚Äô cannot automatically acquire such status & ultimately drag an innocent person in a miserable situation in the guise of arrest. Court has to do what is right, irrespective who is before it,‚ÄĚ the court observed, LiveLaw reported.
