New Delhi: Hitting out at the BJP-led Centre government over the decision of Interpol to take off the Red Corner Notice (RCN) issued against Mehul Choksi, the Senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha on Tuesday said that the CBI and ED agencies are strict against opposition leaders only and sheltering cooperate friends of BJP.

They frame opposition by filing fake cases, but do nothing against actual perpetrators because the BJP government colludes with them.

Addressing the media during a press conference on Tuesday, Raghav Chadha said that the Bharatiya Janata Party government is providing a red carpet facility to Mehul Choksi. The entire BJP is engaged in shielding them.

Raghav Chadha bemoaned the functioning of central agencies and said that it is condemnable that ED-CBI of the Central Government failed to furnish proper evidence to Interpol against Mehul Choksi and Nirav Modi, therefore, Interpol cancelled the Red Corner Notice against them. After all, why does the CBI-ED fail to take strict action against those who commit financial fraud? Why they are protecting them?

Raghav Chadha raised questions and said that Mehul Choksi also shared the stage with the Prime Minister at the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2018. This picture was also released by the government. Two days later, Punjab National Bank disclosed that he had embezzled Rs 13,500 crore.

However, before filing the FIR against him, the central government colluded with Mehul Choksi and ensured his free passage from India to abroad. 

When he fled to Antigua, the BJP government, instead of taking stern action against him, issued a NOC to get him citizenship of Antigua. Based on this certificate, he got citizenship in Antigua. It is a testament that BJP has hands in gloves with Choksi to protect him. 

He alleged that Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi donated crores in place of donations to the BJP. Choksi has good relations with many big leaders of the BJP. So when Interpol issued a Red Corner Notice and sought evidence against him from the Government of India, the BJP government deliberately did not provide any evidence to Interpol, due to which he is living an opulent lifestyle abroad.

Chadha posed several questions to the BJP and asked who informed Mehul Choksi that an inquiry would be initiated against him and he fled the country. How many crores did Mehul Choksi donate to BJP? Why did the BJP government issue a no-objection certificate to Mehul Choksi to take citizenship in another country?

He further asked ‘what is Mehul Choksi’s relationship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi? In 2016, a complaint was filed to the Prime Minister’s Office seeking an investigation against Mehul Choksi, so why has the probe not been done yet? 

Are fugitives like Mehul Choksi, Nirav Modi, Vijay Mallya and Lalit Modi going to join BJP? Because after joining BJP, all corrupt people get a clean chit in all the ongoing cases against them.
