CHENNAI -- Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram today criticised the ED search at the office of his son Karti calling it a "fishing and roving" enquiry and wondered how far a "foolish" government would go to harass him.
"Mr. Karti Chidambaram made a statement. As can be expected nothing was found in the fishing and roving enquiry," said Chidambaram.
"I would like to see how far a foolish government would go in harassing him. I still believe that the departments I left behind have many officers who will act according to law and their conscience," he said.
Chidamabram, last month, accused the government of a "malicious onslaught" launched by it against his family, and said if it wants to target him, it should do so directly and not harass friends of Karti.
