Modi regime targeting my family: Yogendra Yadav
New Delhi, July 11: Former AAP leader Yogendra Yadav on Wednesday lashed out at the BJP-led Centre over alleged raids at a nursing home run by his sisters and called it an attempt to "intimidate" him.
Yadav, who started his campaign with a 'padyatra' two days ago, alleged on Twitter that the Modi government was "targeting" his family.
"Modi regime now targets my family. Two days after my 9-day padyatra in Rewari and launching of agitation for MSP (minimum support price) and against liquor thekas (shops), a massive IT raid is on at the hospital-cum-nursing home of my sisters in Rewari," the Swaraj India leader tweeted.
"Pl(ease) search me, my home, why target my family?," he said.
In another tweet, the Swaraj India leader said this was an attempt to intimidate him.
"About 100+ force from Delhi raided hospitals at 11 am today. All doctors (my sisters, brother in law, nephew) detained in their chambers. Hospital sealed, including ICU for newly born babies. A clear attempt to intimidate. Modiji you can't silence me," Yadav tweeted.
Meanwhile, the BJP's Haryana unit has rubbished Yadav's charge that the Income Tax raid conducted at his sisters' hospital in Rewari was meant to intimidate him.
"Yadav's charge is baseless, there is no truth in the allegations made by him," Haryana BJP vice president Rajiv Jain said.
Asked to comment on Yadav's charge, Jain said, "Where is the question of intimidating anyone? If the Income Tax Department has found anything against anyone, let it do its job and the truth will come out."
"Our government does not believe in targeting anyone. But if there is any wrongdoing, action is taken as per law and I am sure in this case too the same thing will be done," he said.
