A press release issued by Enforcement Directorate claims that the agency has filed a prosecution complaint against office bearers and members of Popular Front under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA) before the Special PMLA Court, Lucknow. However, upon reading through the details of the said release, it becomes clear that wanton attempts have been made to mislead the media and society about our organization. It is a known fact that the ED has been investigating the organization since past several months and it knows the organization leadership inside out. Yet, utterly false claims have been made in the press release.
Members/office bearers of other organizations are portrayed as Popular Front office bearers. This is not an innocent mistake at all. Instead of proving its case through transparent investigations, ED continues to drag the name of Popular Front into fabricated and politically motivated case like the imaginary ” instigation of caste violence” at Hatras. It proves one thing, ED has zero credibility left as an investigation agency. What Popular Front draws from it is that ED has been pressurized by the BJP led central government to defame Popular Front. This attitude of the ED to target Popular Front only proves that it is serving the interest of RSS.
