New Delhi, December 7: The Congress on Friday slammed the ED raids against Robert Vadra's associates, saying an "unnerved" Modi government was unleashing "vendetta" against party chief Rahul Gandhi's brother-in-law to divert the narrative. The Congress' sharp reaction came after the Enforcement Directorate on Friday raided the premises of three people linked to firms of Robert Vadra in a case related to assets held abroad.

The searches at the premises of the three people were related to alleged commissions received by some suspects in defence deals, an ED official claimed. "Sure shot defeat in 5 States unnerves Modi Govt to again use the old tools - unleash revenge & vendetta against Mr. Robert Vadra to divert the narrative," Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said on Twitter. Robert Vadra Breaks Silence on Rafale Deal, Calls BJP Allegations a 'Wholesale Farce'.

"Such cowardice & intimidation will not subjugate either the Congress Party or the will of people," he said.
