SRINAGAR — Congress on Monday staged strong protest demonstrations against ‘tax terrorism’ unleashed against the principal opposition (INC) by the IT Department, terming the move politically motivated and fabricated aiming to stop INC from campaigning after the BJP sensed defeat before the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.

The leaders and workers raised slogans against ‘tax terrorism’ by the IT Department against INC and termed it a deliberate move to stop the Congress party from campaigning during the ensuing Lok Sabha elections. They also displayed play cards demonstrating their anger against the coercion, and vendetta politics against the opposition, especially Congress and leaders of the INDIA alliance.

They said BJP has sensed defeat before the ensuing Lok Sabha elections. As a result, various agencies, especially ED and IT, have been deputed to threaten and stop the Opposition from campaigning under the garb of ‘tax terrorism’ and various other undemocratic measures the BJP is adopting out of fear and frustration, but the Congress said it won’t stop and it will continue fighting against BJP’s autocracy and will defeat it (BJP) in the elections.

Speaking on the sidelines of the protest, Congress leaders blamed the BJP for vitiating the political atmosphere in the country for the lust of power, but the Congress is strong enough to defeat the war against democracy, adding that the BJP has deputed agencies to strangulate the strong and genuine voices, but that will not stop its (BJP’s) defeat in the elections.

They further said that freezing accounts and imposing huge taxes won’t deter the Congress party from fighting and campaigning against the BJP’s wrong policies. BJP could not digest the strength and popularity Congress party is enjoying given the people’s love and affection. As a result, it (BJP) is desperate enough while having realized that the day is not far when it (BJP) will be out of power, they said.
