New Delhi: The Income Tax raids on the premises of Karnataka’s former Deputy chief minister G Parameshwara evoked a sharp response from the Congress party.

The case is related to the alleged irregularities found by the Income Tax Department in a medical college run by a trust related to Parameshwara, I-T sources told news agency ANI. The trust was accused of hoarding black money in huge amounts for medical admission.

So far, the I-T department has conducted raids at around 30 premises. Meanwhile, the Congress leader claimed that he was not aware of the raids by Income Tax department on his premises.

“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,” said G Parameshwara to news agency ANI.
