I wrote a letter to Prime Minister and Finance Minister: Baghel
Why did the ED (Enforcement Directorate) not take action in the civil supplies scam (exposed during the Raman Singh government in Chhattisgarh) despite the case being registered? During the previous government, more than five thousand crore rupees were looted from the people of Chhattisgarh by chit fund companies. Why doesn’t the ED investigate this as a money laundering case? I have written a letter to the Prime Minister and the Finance Minister demanding action in the chit fund case.
BJP government does politics of revenge: Baghel
