Blow for Congress as Karnataka Minister Shivakumar Raided

According to the sources, Rs. 5 crore in cash has been found in the minister’s Delhi home.

Shivakumar, who happened to be the Energy Minister in Karnataka’s Congress government, is being probed for tax evasion.

It is worthwhile pointing that the Congress rushed the lawmakers to Bengaluru last week after six lawmakers quit the party in Gujarat ahead of the RS polls and the state polls later this year.

Congress is saying that after using the state machinery, these I-T raids highlight their utter desperation and frustration.
