Former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda – who has been implicated in Rs 4,000 crore scam – has dared the Income Tax department and the Government to prove the charges against him. He has said that he is ready to quit politics if charges against him are proved.
After three days of intense grilling by Income Tax officials which reduced him to offering meek explanations for the alleged multi-crore scam, Koda has shifted into aggressive gear, resorting to threats and daring the agencies to prove the charges.
“Chodunga nahin kisiko (I shall not spare anybody),” Koda thundered on Sunday in Patahatu, adding that it was all a political conspiracy hatched to malign him during elections.
Meanwhile, Koda made it clear he isn’t submitting himself to interrogations in Delhi easily. He has written to the Enforcement Directorate (ED), who had summoned him on November 15, telling them he is busy with the election campaign in Jharkhand and that he will present himself at the ED offices only after the elections are over.
