BJP attacks BBC offices amid income tax survey, says 'world's most corrupt rubbish organization'

This 'survey operation' of the Income Tax Department was carried out in the BBC offices at a time when the BBC aired a two-part documentary 'India: The Modi Question' a few weeks back. Regarding this, Bhatia said that the history of BBC has been 'tarnished' and it has been doing malicious work against India. He alleged that the 'agenda' is run in the guise of journalism on BBC.

New Delhi: Politics is also heating up regarding the income tax survey at the offices of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) located in Delhi and Mumbai. While the Congress has targeted the government over this income tax survey in the BBC office, the BJP has termed the BBC as the world's most 'corrupt nonsense corporation'. The party also said that the ongoing 'survey operation' of the Income Tax Department against this media group is under the rules and the constitution.


At a press conference at the party headquarters in Delhi, BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia slammed the opposition parties, including the Congress, for targeting the government over the action and reminded them that former prime minister Indira Gandhi had also banned the BBC. Gaurav Bhatia said, "The Income Tax Department's action against BBC is being done according to the rules and under the Constitution."


Bhatia said that India runs under the Constitution and law and today there is a government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Centre. He said, “Income Tax Department… it is not a caged parrot. The department is doing its work.


BJP spokesperson said that if any agency, be it a media group if is working in India and if it has not done anything wrong and has followed the law, then why fear? He said, 'The Income Tax Department should be allowed to do its work. Milk of milk will become water of water.


Bhatia said, 'If we see the actions of BBC, then it has become the most corrupt nonsense corporation of the whole world. It is sad that the propaganda of BBC and the agenda of the Congress coincide together.' He said that while this action is going on, the political reaction of the opposition parties, be it the Congress, the Trinamool Congress or the Samajwadi Party, is 'every A matter of concern for Indian'.


It is worth mentioning that this 'survey operation' of the Income Tax Department was carried out in the BBC offices at a time when the BBC had aired a two-part documentary 'India: The Modi Question' a few weeks back. Regarding this, Bhatia said that the history of BBC has been 'tarnished' and it has been doing malicious work against India.
