Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, a journalist by the name Swati Chaturvedi tweeted that a diary had been recovered from the possession of a chief minister, who belongs to the BJP. However, BJP MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar has detailed out the origin of the "diary" and the scams associated with it that directly affect the voters. Chandrasekhar has thrown light on the Congress's attempts to blind the voters from seeing the truth.
New Delhi: Journalist Swati Chaturvedi took to Twitter to say that the Income Tax Department is in possession of a diary that belonged to a chief minister (hailing from the BJP), which details the payments exceeding of Rs150 crore to a current Cabinet minister. BJP MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar hit back by pointing the scams involving the Congress, under the watchful eyes of Rahul Gandhi.
BREAKING: Income Tax has a diary of a well known Bjp CM which details payments in the excess of 150 crores to a current cabinet minister. The same “fixer minister” is trying his best to suppress the explosive document which will wreck his image— Swati Chaturvedi (@bainjal) March 20, 2019
Rajeev Chandrasekhar detailed out the 2017 steel flyover scam, which had to be scrapped due to the Congress's active involvement in corruption.
The Income Tax department conducted raids at the residence of Congress MLC Govindaraj, an influential legislator, who is known to be close aides of top leaders in the Congress.
Everyone in Karnataka knows this “diary” thts been doing rounds since early 2018 - is a creation by @RahulGandhi ‘s “favourite” @DKshivakumar - created to “counter” REAL #SteelFlyoverDiary recovered in 2017 from @INCIndia MLC by IT with entries of payoffs to Senior Cong Ldrs. https://t.co/vmTfYSTjtz— Chowkidar Rajeev Chandrasekhar 🇮🇳 (@rajeev_mp) March 21, 2019
The I-T officials were in for a surprise when they discovered a diary, hidden in his bedroom, with suspicious entries in it.
Govindaraj's contacts are not just restricted to Karnataka, he is close to even those residing in New Delhi.
The diary had entries of individuals' initials against which it detailed the amount of money that was received from and given to.
It also contained details of a staggering Rs 600 crore that was given to initials like AICC, AP, M Vora, SG Office and RG Office.
The initials were allegedly deciphered as All India Congress Committee (AICC), M Vora (Motilal Vora). SG office (Sonia Gandhi Office), RG office (Rahul Gandhi office) and DGS (Digvijaya Singh).
Govindaraj had been summoned for questioning by the I-T department. But he said that the handwriting wasn't his.
The Congress too had claimed that the diary was fake and was an attempt to malign them. The BJP, however, sought a detailed investigation into it.
Soon after, the Congress government in Karnataka scrapped the controversial steel flyover as allegations of bribe charges came to the fore.
Allegations went far beyond the state borders with the names of Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi coming forward.
Replying to Swati Chaturvedi's tweet, Rajeev Chandrasekhar pointed out that the "diary" is a creation of Rahul Gandhi's favourite, DK Shivakumar.
Chandrasekhar went on to say that the "diary of BJP CM" was brought into the picture ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, in an attempt to counter the diary that was recovered from Govindaraj's residence in 2017.
Rajeev Chandrasekhar further stated that DK Shivakumar found himself neck-deep in I-T and money laundering cases after the raids in 2017.
Fyi @RahulGandhi ‘s #DKShivkumar is embroiled neckdeep in IT n money laundering cases n was raided in 2017 ago n is being prosecuted currently amongst othr things for destroying evidence.— Chowkidar Rajeev Chandrasekhar 🇮🇳 (@rajeev_mp) March 21, 2019
He has tried using this fake diary before n It flopped bcoz everyone knew what it was.
"He (DK Shivakumar) has tried using this fake diary before, but has flopped because everyone knew what it was," read Chandrasekhar's tweet.
In a press release, Rajeev Chandrasekhar stated that this was yet another classic example of how the Congress uses politics as a forum to mislead and distract voters from real issues.
In the tweet, Chandrasekhar also speaks about how the Congress has followed the Cambridge Analytica pattern. Furthermore, Chandrasekhar stated that when things don't go in Rahul's favour, "a friendly journo" would make an entry to distract the attention of the voters from the scams in the family.
This is a #CambridgeAnalytica taught pattern that @INCIndia tries to repeat like a good student. 😄— Chowkidar Rajeev Chandrasekhar 🇮🇳 (@rajeev_mp) March 21, 2019
When things start looking bleak for @rahulgandhi n tough ques r being askd - on cue comes a “friendly” journo along wth another “lie” to distract attention away from “family”.
