Shillong, August 19: Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Kumar Mishra has denied to the allegation made by the opposition on the misuse of the Enforcement Directorate by the central government.
Speaking to media person in Shillong, Mishra said, “What you think we are misusing ED? In the last 8 years more than Rs 1 lakh 15 thousand crore cash and assets were seized by ED and this seizure was made from the people who for a long time has been looting public money and public rights and such people are troubled because their misdeeds are caught, so where from ED is getting these.”
The Union Minister further said that they are known for doing money laundering through crypto currency and people involved in such works are blaming ED because both ED and CBI are independent agencies.
“BJP is not misusing any such independent investigation agencies but at the same time never interfere in their work. Those who are guilty will be punished as per the law,” he said.
Meanwhile, the minister also expressed confidence that the BJP will form the new government in Meghalaya.
“I like the state, people are good. Any citizen who thinks positively will do good for the party. I have full faith that the next government in the state will be formed by BJP,” he said.
