Taapsee in her tweets had written, “3 days of intense search of 3 things primarily 1. The keys of the ‘alleged’ bungalow that I apparently own in Paris. Because summer holidays are around the corner. 2. The ‘alleged’ receipt worth 5 crores to frame n keep for future pitching coz I’ve been refused that money before 3. My memory of 2013 raid that happened with me according to our honourable finance minister P.S- ‘not so sasti’ anymore.”
To this Sitharaman tweeted, “First of all, I am not commenting on any A or B individual. (But) since the names were taken, (I want to say) the very same names were raided in 2013,” Sitharaman said at IWPC (Indian Women’s Press Corps). “It wasn’t an issue (in 2013). It’s an issue now.”
“I am not commenting on a particular case. But if that relates to particular names I want to ask — should we raise questions whether there was a serious omission and commission or should we raise a question about ‘oh it’s happening now’?” the finance minister said. “Please look back. It happened in 2013”, she further added.
