Rahul hugs Modi but runs away from Tax department

NEW DELHI: Accusing the Gandhi family of consistently dedicating itself to only enhancing its “personal economic strength”, the BJP on Tuesday said that Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who is quick to hug Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is running away from the Income Tax department.

Union Minister Smriti Irani attacked the Congress and the Gandhi family, citing Monday’s Delhi High Court verdict that dismissed the pleas of Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi against the Income Tax notice seeking tax reassessment for the financial year 2011-2012 and comments made by former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan.

“It is my belief after reading media reports that Rahul Gandhi and his family refuse to answer the income tax officers on the basis of notice served to them. I ask every Indian citizen that can any of us defy the income tax notice when asked to come and produce answers. Why is that Gandhi, who is quick to hug the Prime Minister, would run miles away when it comes to income tax officers,” Irani told a press conference.
