When asked about IT raids conducted at the properties owned by Congress Rajya Sabha MP from Jharkhand, Dheeraj Sahu, Siddaramaiah questioned why raids are only happing on Congress leaders and why not on BJP leaders.

"Why IT raids happening only on Congress leaders' houses? If IT raid is done on BJP leader's house more money will be recovered," said Siddaramaiah.

Meanwhile, the Income Tax Department continued conducting raids on fifth day in a row at the premises of Boudh Distilleries Private Limited on Sunday.

Baldev Sahu Infra Pvt Ltd company is a group company of Boudh Distilleries, which is covered in the search and is linked to Dheeraj Sahu.
