I-T raids continue at TDP leader CM Ramesh
Income tax department continued tax raids overnight at the residential properties and offices of Telegu Desam Party leader CM Ramesh in Hyderabad and Kadapa. He said that the raids were a “political vendetta”.
The raids started on Friday when multiple locations, including the office of a company owned by Ramesh’s relative, were raided. Tax officials conducted searches at his business premises at Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad, Amravati and Kadapa and also at Rithwik Projects, a company Ramesh owns.
Earlier this year, TDP broke its ties with Narendra Modi-led NDA over Centre’s refusal to grant special status to Andhra Pradesh. Ramesh was among the lawmakers who protested and escalated their demand for the special status category to Andhra Pradesh
