The Income Tax Department (IT) has raided the houses of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s son and close relatives of minister Aaditya Thackeray. IT has also raided the places of close relatives of Anil Parab. In the past too, IT had raided the houses of BMC contractors and Shiv Sena leaders.
After the Income Tax Department raid, Shiv Sena leader and MP Sanjay Raut said that IT has now been left to our people. He said, “I think till the BMC elections are done, IT will go to every ward. Now this work is left to the central agencies. The whole country wants to know why the central agency conducts raids only in Maharashtra and West Bengal.
Income Tax Department is conducting raids at the office and residence of close aides of Shiv Sena leaders and Maharashtra ministers Aaditya Thackeray and Anil Parab. The raids are being conducted in Mumbai and Pune. Details awaited.

Sanjay Raut said whether he does not get any in any other state. We know that there is a conspiracy to topple this government. We have given 50 names to ED and IT and with evidence no action is taken against them. ED and IT do not understand that if an MP makes a complaint like this, then he should be taken seriously.
The Shiv Sena leader further said that Shiv Sena will soon reveal who is controlling this raid.
