AICC spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said this while referring to raids by the CBI and the Income-Tax Department on the residences and properties of P Chidambaram of the Congress and Lalu Prasad of the RJD over alleged corruption.
The government has refrained from taking action against its own leaders in scams like Vyapam and GSPL, he alleged.
"It is carrying out opportunistic and selective investigations against opposition leaders. It is indulging in witch-hunting, and selective and opportunistic prosecution," he told reporters.
Singhvi asked why the government did not take action against former BJP minister and mining baron G Janardhan Reddy who allegedly spent around Rs 500 crore on his daughter's wedding and in the Sahara-Birla papers.
The Congress leader also sought to know why no action was taken in the Vyapam scam despite the Supreme Court handing over the probe into it to the CBI.
"What has happened so far ... Why have you not handed over the probe into in the GSPL case to the CBI?" he asked.
