Swaraj India co-founder Yogendra Yadav on Wednesday had accused the Narendra Modi government of targeting his family after an income-tax raid was conducted at his sisters’ hospital in Rewari.

Yadav in a series of tweets alleged that over 100 officials from Delhi raided a hospital-cum-nursing home run by his sisters.

“Modi regime now targets my family. Two days after my 9-day padyatra in Rewari and launching of agitation for MSP (minimum support price) and against liquor thekas (shops), a massive I-T raid is on at the hospital-cum-nursing home of my sisters in Rewari,” Yadav tweeted.

The Swaraj leader also alleged that the raid was conducted at his sisters’ hospital with an intent to intimidate and silence him.

“Pl(ease) search me, my home, why target my family?,” he added.

“About 100+ force from Delhi raided hospitals at 11 am today. All doctors (my sisters, brother in law, nephew) detained in their chambers. Hospital sealed, including ICU for newly born babies. A clear attempt to intimidate. Modiji you can’t silence me,” Yadav tweeted.

Yadav had led a padyatra two days agao, which crossed 127 villages of Rewari in nine days.
