Twist in the tale :
Now today the central investigating agencies controlled by centre led BJP govt. such as Enforcement Directorate- ED, Central Bureau of Investigation – CBI, NCB, NIA etc, are acting as core part of NDA alliance. This we say because today BJP is the only most powerful political party in NDA political alliance and other political parties in alliance are just acting as null & void, just forming governments seems for financial & political benefits only. And BJP govt. is using all the central investigating agencies in India to sphere no stone unturn to destabilize the state governments rules by opposition parties. The latest example is the destabilization of Maharashtra Govt. led by Maha Vikas Agadhi- MVA- the coalition of 3 political parties- Shiv Sena, NCP, Congress. where as per open media informations 40 MLA’s (Member of Legislative Assembly) has been informally terrorised by BJP party to form BJP led govt.in Maharashtra or else ED & CBI to be used againest this MLA’s for agency enquiries. We can confidently say , today it has become a norm after 2014 (year BJP- led NDA came to power) to mis-use this central agencies by BJP govt. against opposition political party leaders to harrash them or to destabilize opposition led state govts., as just in the near past and presently also this agencies are being used against opposition political party leaders or their family/ friends in the states of Rajasthan, Delhi, West Bengal, Jharkhand etc, therefore its not wrong to say that today central agencies are acting as the political associates of NDA used by BJP to destabilize the fabric of Democracy in India.
