Income Tax officials on Wednesday raided the office and factory of Health Minister Vishwajeet Rane taking everybody by surprise as Rane Junior is not only a minister in the Goa government, but is also a member of the Congress Party.
In the past, the Congress which is heading the UPA government at Centre, has been accused of misusing the Income Tax to raid its rivals and trouble makers and in Goa this was the reason cited earlier when the department raided Education Minister Babush Monserrate.
However, the raid at Vishwajeet’s Karapur Agro Pvt. Ltd., were conducted by IT officials from the Karnataka circle and the Goa division of the department was not aware of it.
No details were available as Vishwajeet could not be contacted nor were the local IT officials aware of the raid.
