Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Youth activists Wednesday staged a protest near Income Tax Bhawan here against the alleged politically motivated raids on party leaders under the government.

The protesters were marching from office towards the Income Tax Bhawan when they were stopped by a police contingent.

Youth (DYC) said the BJP was using central agencies against the opposition but not against its "corrupt" leaders, he said.

"Why are they not taking actions against the sons of BJP ministers whose salaries have gone up hundred times in the last five years. There are no CBI and Income Tax (IT) department raids conducted in there offices and residences," Chhikara said.

A statement by the DYC said, "The raids by the investigating agencies are to influence the general election".

The Income Tax Department Sunday launched pre-dawn raids at 52 locations, including in Delhi and Madhya Pradesh, against close aides of and others on charges of tax evasion and hawala transactions, officials had said.
