PANAJI: Former AICC Secretary Girish Chodankar on Friday alleged that the BJP leaders have been concerned in operating ‘benami companies’ and the ‘Goa Restaurant’ subject has uncovered it.
“It has become clear that BJP leaders are involved in running ‘benami businesses’, after Union Minister Smriti Irani’s family-run illegal restaurant in Goa got exposed. Now the Enforcement Directorate should step in and investigate,” Chodankar mentioned reacting to ongoing controversy over operation of ‘Foolish Souls Cafe’ at Assagao village in North Goa.
“BJP and RSS leaders should come clear on whether they support Irani family’s Benami business and serving of pork and beef in an illegal restaurant. Miss Zoish Irani has herself claimed to be serving pork and beef items in an interview, which is now become viral after illegal benami business was exposed.” Chodankar, Former Goa GPCC chief mentioned.
“Smriti Irani’s family-run restaurant is the best example of how BJP leaders are into running benami businesses by using government machinery,” he acknowledged.
“Though Union Minister Irani has denied that her family is running restaurant in Goa, there is sufficient circumstantial evidence about her family’s involvement in it,” Chodankar mentioned.
“This is an open and shut case of benami business and fit for the investigation by the Enforcement Directorate. If the ED dares to inquire with Superintendent of Excise Department, the entire truth in the matter will come to light,” he mentioned.
“This officer (Superintendent of Excise) was aware about the death of Anthony D’gama, one who had obtained license for restaurant. But the license was renewed without insisting on police verification and other mandatory documents,” Chodankar mentioned, including that BJP used authorities equipment for the aim.
Smriti Irani has already clarified that her daughter will not be concerned in operating restaurant in Goa and has issued authorized notices to Congress leaders demanding an apology from them.
