BJP And TRS Govts Slowed Down Pace Of India’s Development: Uttam

Take Part in Nationwide Protest on July 21 and 22: Uttam to Party Cadre

Hyderabad, July 19 (Hydnow): Congress MP N. Uttam Kumar Reddy asked the party cadre to participate in the nationwide protest on July 21 and 22. Congress president Sonia Gandhi will be visiting the Enforcement Directorate’s office on July 21 in response to the summons sent by the ED in the National Herald case.

Addressing the media through Zoom App on Tuesday, Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the BJP Govt was using Central agencies, especially the Enforcement Directorate, as a tool to target the Opposition leaders. He said the allegations of money laundering in the National Herald case by the Enforcement Directorate were completely false. He said there was no basis for the ED or any other Central agency to question Congress president Sonia Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi. He pointed out that the National Herald issue was a simple debt-to-equity conversion with absolutely no transaction of money. Since no money was involved in the transaction, the question of money laundering does not arise, he added.

Uttam Kumar Reddy said the BJP Govt has been using the ED only to defame the Nehru-Gandhi family, demoralize the Congress cadre and divert the people’s attention from real issues like rising inflation, China’s intrusion into India, and so on. He said debt-to-equity conversion was a regular process that lending banks do frequently, he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi Govt has revived the National Herald issue which was earlier closed.

Congress leaders and the entire cadre will never allow the BJP Govt to harass Sonia Gandhi. We will hold protests across the country on July 21 and 22 to express our solidarity with our leader and also to convey a message that we will not bow down to the intimidating tactics of the Modi Govt,” he added.
