Udupi: Not afraid of being targeted - Madhwaraj on IT raids on fishing industrialists


Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (HB/EP)

Udupi, Feb 13: Pramod Madhwaraj, minister of state for Fisheries, Youth Services and Sports and district in-charge, responding to a barrage of questions from the reporters after IT raids on fishing industrialists said that nobody can target him. “I am not afraid of being targeted by anybody. Nobody can target me except the almighty,” he said.

When asked if the union government is targeting only Congress leaders or if it is an attempt by the BJP to attract leaders into the party fold, Madhwaraj said that he pays taxes sincerely and follows the law of the country. “I have not taken money from anybody for elections. I have returned the money received for funding. I do not need it,” he said.

Rubbishing rumors aside, he said, “The news that I am joining BJP is spread by the media as they have the freedom.”

Regarding the proposed fishermen's conference in the coastal region by Amit Shah, he said that Amith Shah remembers fishermen and Hindus only when elections are nearing.

“Fishermen are not fools. Why does the union government not provide diesel and kerosene on subsidised rates to fishermen, the way state government does? The state government deposits Rs 8 per liter of diesel to the accounts of fishermen every month. On what basis is the conference proposed? What good have they done for the fishermen community during the last four years?” he asked.

Speaking on hard Hindutva and what is soft Hindutva, Madhwaraj asked, “Is killing people Hindutva? Are members of the Congress not Hindus? Do we not go to temple? Should only BJP members go to temples? Is there a restriction in the constitution against Congress members going to temples? Are we untouchable?”

On Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s temple visits, Madhwaraj asked, “Did Rahul start going to temple day before yesterday? Sonia Gandhi performs Ganahoma during every elections before submitting nomination papers. Is it not known to all?”

    Amit shah and modi are abusing their power for political gains. TRhere was strong news that SM Krishna joined bjp because he was blackmailed that his son in law's business will be targeted by cbi. By the way, no matter how clean one is, cbi raid and enquiry can destroy an individual/business and everybody in their right mind will do almost anything to avoid that. I would like to know how many people who gloat over cbi raid would like an enquiry by IT or cbi into their finances. Do they realize that IT and cbi can ask for explanation and proof for every transaction no matter how small? You drink a cup of tea in a roadside stall for 5 rupees and you need to keep a record of that. I understand that nothing will happen to most people at the end of the day, but the hastle and harassment accompanied by negative propaganda are enough to drive one to despair.
    By the way, did anybody notice that the rumours have started that Mr. Madhwaraj is going to join bjp. So are these raids meant to to intimidate popular leaders to join bjp?

    Karnataka is the best state to live in India. if you see most of thee murders in Karnataka, majority criminal are murdered.

    most of hem are involved in some monkey business. In mangalore they call it Kattada Kori. if you see thee the living criminal side of BJP ruled state like UP, MP, Rajastan,Haryana,Gujart. The records of Gujarat style only encounter from Daku & team. The people of Karnatak will never forget the mess & jokers of previous Yaddi govt. people of Udupi made a biggest mistake electing Shobha from sulia. wee paid heavily . you still want to know which govt will come in next election ? One & Only Siddu.

    This is all Shoba's job . She provoked Modiji to ride Fisheries industry. She think that when Amit visits more fishermen will come. I think because of this ride Madwaraj will get more votes.

    by looking at pics , he is clearly worried . Fact is very much true . ofcourse he has done lot of developments and popular leader and has kept books properly and paying taxes . simply ED or IT will not ride , They will ensure procedure followed while declaring amount seized .

    Usually exporters underinvoice and resell at higher rate at for clients using their own shell companies and also point is in the name of commision , they might have done big payments outside India and through their agent . they might have stashed abroadd . as per records , it looks clean and but these violations will impact . There is a rule in India , how much company should pay as a commission to agents who fecilicated the deal . This guy will be in problem . if ED proves any FERA violations .

    If Madhwaraj and his bandwagon of Industralists are clean, nothing to worry. Truth will come out. Don't you think 195 crore un-accounted money is too much to hide from not paying taxes. So I am not sure what are you trying to justify.

    Who told you 195 crore un accounted money belonged to Pramodji?. You should be worried how 50000 rupees turned to 80 crores in 3 months!!!. If congress comes to power at center, everyone will come to know the clean government of 50 % !

    Only places CBI,IT and Enforcement Directorate can't reach is Amit Shah son Yash Shah Benami business, Bellary mine mafia Janardhan Reddy.
    As the state assembly elections are closing in, BJP is desperately wanted to weaken strong Congress candidates financially through IT raids and use administrative power force them to join BJP.
    Since PM Modi government came to power not even single raid on its own elected members took place.
    Those who are exposed took week long 'Maun vrat' and other use 'defamation suit' and those opposed being falsely framed and prosecuted.
    The time of this raids are nothing but political rather than cleaning graft.
    Jai Hind

    Fine Mr MLA. If you and your industrialist friends paid taxes sincerely, then no need to get agitated. Relax! Truth will come out. Did anybody questioned you about your temple visits? Don't justify others who visits temples, churches, masjid and gurdwaras only during the election. All Fishermans may be not voting to your party and let them have their conference.
