New Delhi, Sep 27: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday took a dig at the government at Centre and said that Sharad Pawar was the latest leader to be targeted by the vindictive dispensation.
Mr Rahul Gandhi has said this as Mr Pawar is scheduled to appear before the Enforcement Directorate on Friday. Mr Gandhi pointed out that the timing of the action coincided with the Maharashtra Assembly polls.
'Sharad Pawar Ji is the latest Opposition leader to be targeted by a vindictive government. The timing of this action, a month before elections in Maharashtra, reeks of political opportunism.' Mr Gandhi said in a tweet.
Mr Pawar on Wednesday had talked about voluntarily appearance before the ED in Mumbai as the enforcement agency had named him in a case of alleged irregularities in connection with a cooperative bank matter. (UNI)
