National president of Swaraj India party, Yogendra Yadav, on Wednesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of targeting his family following Income Tax raids on two hospitals run by his sisters in Rewari, Haryana.

Yadav has been campaigning for remunerative prices for the produce of farmers and demanding that liquor shops in every village be closed. 

On Tuesday, he took to Twitter and said that over 100 officials from Delhi raided a hospital-cum-nursing home run by his sisters on Wednesday in Rewari.

''Modi regime now targets my family. Two days after my 9 day padyatra in Rewari and launching of agitation for MSP and against liquor thekas, a massive IT raid is on at the hospital cum nursing home of my sisters in Rewari. Pl search me, my home, why target my family? (Sic),'' he said in a tweet. 

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.”
