New Delhi: 7th June, 2017. Welfare Party of India strongly criticised the raids conducted by the CBI at the premises owned by NDTV and its promoters as nothing but witch-hunt and part of the intimidation tactic followed by the Modi government. Party national president Dr.S.Q.R.Ilyas in a statement said the clarification by the central government that it has nothing to do with the raids will not satisfy even its own sympathisers. “Selective use of the investigative agency against leaders of opposition political parties has become routine now. It is alleged to be the tactic followed to silence them or make them fall in line. Though NDTV channel has received notices of Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax Departments in the past, this is for the first time that the CBI has been involved in the alleged loan default case. The hasty steps initiated by the agency here invite suspicion while investigation of mega frauds of multimillions moves in snail speed. This is part of the game being played by the government to bring the media under its control. Incidents of media establishments and fraternity facing threats and abuse for not praising hymns of the Modi government are on the rise. It would be demise of democracy wherein the media cannot function freely without fear and favour. Welfare Party demands the central government to desist from the witch-hunting."
