Anticipatory CBI raids at Sharad Pawar’s residence

Mumbai. While the controversy surrounding CBI raids at DMK leader Stalin’s houses is still to subside, fresh raids have been carried out by the investigating agency at NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s residence.

“We are not trying to recover anything, in fact, there are no charges pending against Mr. Pawar in our files as of now,” CBI chief Ranjit Sinha clarified, “These are anticipatory raids, just like those anticipatory bails.”

Sinha told Faking News that CBI had to come up with this idea of “anticipatory raids” to make sure that the government was stable, and so was the daily routine of the CBI officers.

“One fine day some neta wakes up in bad mood, utters something stupid, and the whole government becomes unstable. This is quickly followed by calls to our offices and we have to work overtime to dig old files and carry fresh raids. This was becoming too taxing,” the CBI chief claimed.

He further claimed that many CBI officers had to cancel their planned leaves and the morale of the force was down.

“Their married lives are under strain and their kids taunt that it was better if they had joined the fake CBI team under Akshay Kumar,” he grumbled.

After much internal protests, the CBI chief gave in to the demands of carrying raids that were planned at the CBI headquarters than planned at some other headquarter.

“And that’s how we came up with the idea of anticipatory raids – and our first target was NCP, the biggest UPA ally after DMK pulled out,” explained Ranjit Sinha.

When contacted, NCP sources confirmed that the government was stable and Sharad Pawar didn’t have any undeclared assets (even though CBI didn’t press any such charge in their maiden anticipatory raid).
