Mumbai, August 25 (KMS): Maharashtra Congress president Nana Patole has hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party, saying that it was working in a more brutal way than the British rulers in pre-Independence India, and claimed that the country was under an undeclared Emergency since 2014.
Nana Patole talking to reporters in Mumbai said it is becoming clear that the BJP is misusing agencies like the Enforcement Directorate, the Central Bureau of Investigation and Income Tax Department to topple the non-BJP party-led governments in states and break the opposition parties.
The BJP has adopted the divide and rule policy like the British rulers in India, Patole said, adding that action was being taken against the leaders or political parties who do not support the party.
“The country has been under an undeclared Emergency since 2014. The BJP has been working on eliminating the opposition in the country. The CBI raids on Aam Aadmi Party’s Manish Sisodia and Rashtriya Janata Dal legislator’s house in Delhi is an example of this. BJP is misusing CBI, ED, Income Tax systems to gain political advantage. The party is restless after losing power in Bihar,” he added.
