The income tax department on Thursday conducted raids at the house and some educational institutes owned by former Karnataka deputy chief minister and senior Congress leader G Parameshwara. The I-T department also carried out raids at a medical college and hospital in Kolar owned by former Union minister RL Jalappa, according to reports.
"I am not aware of the raid. I don't know where they are doing it. Let them search I have no issue. If there is any fault from our side, we will rectify it,” G Parameshwara told ANI.
Meanwhile, Congress said the raids were "politically motivated".
Former Karnataka CM and leader of opposition Siddaramaiah tweeted, "The series of IT raids on @DrParameshwara, RL Jalappa & others, are politically motivated with malafide intention. They are only targeting @INCKarnataka leaders as they have failed to face us on policy & corruption issues. We won’t budge to any such tactics!!"
