New Delhi, Aug 4 (IANS): In the latest development in connection with the National Herald issue, Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials quizzed senior Congress leader Mallikarjuna Kharge during the search operation at the office of Young Indian (YI) Pvt Ltd.

He was quizzed over a few documents of YI.

On Thursday a team of ED officials reached the YI office for the search operation. They also opened the office of YI which had been sealed.

    This man Shah is a menace to the nation... Just when Lalu was becoming formidable before 2019 polls he was put behind and made inert... Now he wants to ensure that congress may not be a threat in 2024... 5G auctions may prove to be the mother of all scams... Let us wait and watch...

    Show me 1 BJP leader or it's allies quizzed by ED or IT or CBI......... Himanta Biswa Sarma when he was in Congress, cases were filed on him by CBI in 2015-16 on Sarada Chit fund scam and Louis berger scam. After joining washing machine BJP he became the CM of Assam ! 48 hours after Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar had swearing in ceremony at 4.00am, 9 cases against Ajit Pawar in Irrigation scam was closed !! This is BJP's gift ! The list is long of BJP's so called "ANTI CORRUPT" policy.... KUCH TOH SHARAM KARO

    Johnson, Irani won which case ?? That her daughter is 18 years old and studying 1st year Degree ? Reportedly incorrect, as she is managing Silly Souls Bar in Goa. Winning is yet to come, that too from a court in Delhi whereas the case belongs to Goa.

    Kedhar, have you ever tried to question what happened to the brick cost donated by Hindus during Babri Mosque demolition to build Ram Mandir ? How much it has grown into and who is the owner of that much of money ? Forget that - have you guys questioned why budget allocation is made for funds starting from 'Bhumi Poojan' ??? Or, how much was collected from peoples' contribution and what is the accountability ? Look into your own flaws, man, Modi government is sufficient to deal with the Gandhis and how they dealt with matters of their times.

    Deshbhaktha, The article here is about 80+ Khargaa Questioned for over 8 hours in some Young India case. Your retort about bricks, motar, cement is not connected at all. When that topic, comes we will discuss. Right? Now fix your gaze on poor 80+ Khargaa who has done so so much for the downtrodden and nothing for himself. Right? Another Lal Bahadur Shastri of Congress?

    Modi Government is shamelss is using ED and CBI and IT departments to suppress every bit of opposition in the country. If the government has any honesty left, let them go after the BJP leaders who have amassed so much of black money.
