New Delhi: Reacting to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summon to his son, Punjab Congress president Capt. Amarinder Singh on Monday lashed out at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley saying that he cannot get over his electoral defeat in Amritsar.
Jaitley lost to Amarinder Singh by nearly 90,000 votes in the 2014 general election.
Amarinder also said that Jaitley is using ED and I-T to issue summons to his family members. “This is total fraud notice. This issue of income tax and all has been done by Jaitley, he can’t get over his defeat,” Singh said.
The ED on Sunday had issued summons to Amarinder Singh’s son Raninder Singh for alleged violation of Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) and asked him to appear before ED’s Jalandhar office on June 16.
Earlier, Ludhiana’s Chief judicial magistrate Ranjeev Kumar had issued a notice to Raninder for lying to the Income Tax department about his foreign bank accounts.
