The Congress hit out on the Modi authorities and linked the sealing of Young Indian’s workplace and the elevated deployment of police outdoors the AICC headquarters to protests deliberate by the celebration on Friday on worth rise, unemployment and hike in GST charges on important commodities.
The Delhi Police on Wednesday deployed personnel outdoors the Congress headquarters at 24, Akbar Road. The Congress claimed the police had surrounded the residence of celebration president Sonia Gandhi at 10, Janpath, and that of former Congress president Rahul Gandhi at 12, Tughlaq Lane.
ED officers have rejected the Congress’ defence that Young Indian was a non-profit organisation and there was “no question” of creating and laundering cash.
“Young Indian has not carried out any charitable activity since 2010 and has been engaged in commercial business. It has taken over AJL properties worth more than Rs 800 crore and has been earning rent on them. Thus, the claim that even if the properties were fraudulently taken over, the benefit will go for charitable purposes is an untenable argument,” an ED official stated on August 3.
