Expressing the Congress party’s stance, Mallikarjun Kharge stated, “We strongly condemn the arrest of Tamil Nadu Electricity Minister V Senthil Balaji by the ED.
This is an act of political harassment and vendetta orchestrated by the Modi government against those who oppose it.”
Kharge has consistently accused the ruling BJP of misusing the Central probe agencies to target political adversaries. He further affirmed, “Such audacious maneuvers will not intimidate the Opposition.
Instead, they strengthen our determination and commitment to continue our democratic struggle against the Modi government’s ‘anti-people’ policies.”
In connection with an alleged money laundering case, the ED apprehended Balaji following raids conducted at his premises.
