He further said that the same official allegedly gave a clean chit to the state BJP President 24 hours after raiding his property. "The Gowda family has faced many critical issues like I-T, ED and CBI," he said adding that the NDA and its leader PM Narendra Modi were misusing the autonomous bodies.

"Modi will lose his image if he continues his revenge politics by targeting opposition leaders during the election. BJP cannot demoralize the JDS leaders through I-T raids," he added. 

I-T officials are continuing raids at the houses of class 1 contractors and associates of HD Revanna; Ashwath and Rayigowda in Channarayapatna town and Narayanareddy in Arsikere.
