Some of them have been sent to jail,” PM Modi said at a public meeting in Jharkhand, adding that the focus of his government is development for all and fight against corruption.

The Central Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement Directorate, country’s main anti corruption and anti-money laundering agencies, have arrested and raided several top political leaders including former union minister P Chidambaram and Congress troubleshooter in Karnataka DK Shivakumar, in the last three months since the Modi government came back to the power with a thumping majority for a second term.

The Opposition parties have accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of using the investigating agencies to intimidate their leaders or divert the attention of people from real issues.

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) hit back at the Congress for defending those facing corruption charges . “Law enforcement agencies will do their work and courts will do their own work. But, the Congress party and its leadership is trying to convert corruption into a revolution,” Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.
