‘If Dhiraj Sahu joins BJP’: Rajya Sabha MP Priyanka Chaturvedi takes dig at BJP

Referring to the allegations against Ajit Pawar and NCP leaders, Priyanka Chaturvedi urged BJP not to give clean chit to Dheeraj Sahu if he joins the saffron party.

Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Priyanka Chaturvedi urged the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) not to give a clean chit to Congress MP Dheeraj Sahu if he joins the saffron party in future. He said that the BJP should assure the country about this.

Referring to the allegations against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leaders including Ajit Pawar in the Rs 70,000 crore irrigation scam in Maharashtra, Chaturvedi said Ajit Pawar broke away from the NCP and joined the BJP. Due to this, ED and IT action against him has also ended.


The corrupt will not be freed from their sins. According to Hindustan Times, he said, “Before declaring Congress corrupt, BJP should assure the country that these corrupt people will not be absolved of their sins if they join the party in future.”

Rahul Gandhi on BJP’s mark 

Earlier, the ruling BJP sought answers from Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in the matter. BJP national president JP Nadda wrote on social media platform X, ‘Brother, you too and your leader Rahul Gandhi will have to answer. This is new India, here people will not be allowed to be exploited in the name of the royal family. You will get tired of running, but the law will not leave you.”

Meanwhile, Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) MP Chirag Paswan said, “This is an old tradition of opposition leaders, first they will commit corruption and once caught, they will try to sideline it. Who is involved in this and who is not?” There should be an investigation and whoever is found guilty, after the investigation, action should be taken against that person.”

Seizure of more than Rs 300 crore

It is noteworthy that the Income Tax Department raided a distillery company owned by Sahu’s brother in Balangir, Odisha and has so far recovered more than Rs 300 crore in cash. According to the report, the search operation is still going on. Meanwhile, on Sunday (December 10) morning, new machines have been ordered to count the notes.
