Dhiraj Sahu breaks silence for the first time over 350 Crore Cash Haul

Days following the income tax department’s raids on liquor firms in Odisha associated with Jharkhand Congress MP, resulting in the seizure of over Rs. 350 crore in various towns of Odisha and Jharkhand, Dheeraj Sahu declared on Friday that the money recovered by the I-T officials “does not belong to the party” but rather constitutes his family’s wealth.

Sahu clarified that the funds were not intended for political considerations. He asserted that the money does not solely belong to him but is the collective wealth of the entire family and firms within their group. The purpose behind these funds was stated as addressing outstanding payments within the business.

Dhiraj Sahu Denies Political Connection

In a single, unprecedented operation, authorities recovered ₹353 crore from the locations of Boudh Distillery Private Limited in Jharkhand, Odisha, and West Bengal. These sites are intricately connected to Dhiraj Sahu’s liquor enterprise and the residence of the Member of Parliament.

Commencing on December 6, the Income Tax raids concluded in the early hours of Friday. Dhiraj Sahu, with an active political career spanning 30-35 years, clarified that the seized money was not designated for the Congress or any other political parties. Instead, he asserted that it constituted proceeds from the sale of liquor.

He stated, “I have been in active politics for the last 30-35 years. The money that was seized was not meant for the Congress or other political parties, but proceeds of the sale of liquor.”

Sahu Clarifies Liquor Funds Reserved for Mahua Flowers and Government Dues

Explaining the predominant cash nature of the liquor business, Sahu clarified that the funds were reserved for Mahua flowers payments and government dues. He emphasized that the money is not solely his but is the collective possession of the entire family and group firms. Asserting transparency in their business operations, he highlighted a century-long history of contributing substantial revenue to the government, affirming his commitment to providing a detailed account to the income tax authorities.

“The money is not all mine but belongs to the entire family and firms of our group. All our business is transparent. In the last 100 years, we have given a lot of revenue to the government. I will give account for everything to income tax,” Sahu added.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) strongly criticized the Congress, accusing them of looting the people’s money. Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to the social media platform X, stating, “Countrymen should look at these piles of currency notes and then hear the addresses of its (Congress) leaders on honesty. Every penny looted from people will have to be returned. This is Modi’s guarantee.”

Leaders React to PM’s Taunt and Cash Seizure Controversy

Responding to the Prime Minister’s taunt, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh called for the PM to elucidate the “biggest money heist since 1947.” Expressing bewilderment, Union Home Minister Amit Shah remarked on the understandable silence from the Congress but found it surprising that alliance partners of the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance, such as Janata Dal-United, Rashtriya Janata Dal, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, and Samajwadi Party, remained silent on the matter.

“I understand the Congress because this is in their nature, but the Janata Dal-United, Rashtriya Janata Dal, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and Samajwadi Party are all quiet too,” he noted.

Expressing astonishment, BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad questioned Sahu’s purported lack of awareness regarding the Rs 300 crore cash found in his house. He labeled the recovery as the “biggest raid in India’s history”

Entitled “CONGRESS PRESENTS MONEY HEIST,” the BJP circulated a one-minute clip showcasing the money recovered by I-T department officials during the Odisha cash haul associated with Congress leader Dhiraj Sahu. The video depicted Rahul Gandhi, dressed as a character from the Netflix drama, expressing immense excitement upon observing the stack of currency notes.

During the first day of the winter session on Friday, BJP legislators in Jharkhand staged a protest outside the state assembly, urging action against Sahu. The Opposition legislators, carrying placards and chanting slogans, pressed for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation into the cash seizure and called for the arrest of Sahu.
