The Supreme Court on Friday refused to order an inquiry into documents recovered by Income Tax (I-T) department during its raids at Birla and Sahara offices that allegedly showed payoffs to politicians. The court said that it couldn’t order inquiry against a chief minister or the prime minister only because there is an entry in a computer showing payments. The apex court directed the department to find better material for it to start an inquiry.

The plea was filed by an NGO seeking probe in the matter. The apex court gave more time to the NGO and deferred the hearing to December 14.

The ruling comes in the backdrop of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of receiving bribes when he was the Gujarat CM and had sought a judicial probe into the issue. AAP leader Ashish Khetan said, “We will ask the public if there should be an independent probe into the documents seized during Income Tax raids into Sahara and Birla’s offices which revealed that bribes worth crores of rupees paid to Modi and many other leaders,” he said.

          These Khujliwaals, axal Bhushans need to remember that the more muck tey throw at Modi,the stronger he becomes. Even Sonia was forced to bite the dust when UPA was in power. What can these corrupt urban naxals do? Modi has not lived at hs home fo r a single day for last 50 years and these fuc*tards say he takes money. Even AAPTards dont believe these commies. SC should not waste time on these urban naxals.

            Even if is Narendra Damodardas Modi, you are going to deny it's not him. 3000 people died under his watch but you say he had nothing do with it. Mive corruption scandals occurred. How can a chaiwala spend Rs 20000 cr. for lok sabha elections? Who gave him the money and now what favors are being returned to the donors? Favors that must be costing the nation billions of dollars.
