Amid allegations of misuse of the Central agencies against opposition leaders, Union Minister of State for Culture of India Meenakshi Lekhi on Thursday sparked a controversy when she asked opposition MPs in the Lok Sabha to keep mum or else the Enforcement Directorate (ED) would show up at their doorsteps.

Union Minister Meenakshi Lekhi was seen saying “Shaant raho! Tumhare ghar ED na aa jaye….”  when an Opposition MP interjected while she was speaking in the Lok Sabha during a discussion on the Delhi services bill,  followed by a smirk.

The opposition parties have accused the Union Minister of openly threatening rival MPs. They  said the insinuating threat given by Lekhi in the heat of the moment proved that central agencies were being misused.

Lekhi  later clarified by saying that she was “only joking” and the chair of the House – Meerut MP Rajendra Agarwal – said that the remark won’t go on the record.

But the damage had already been done as several Opposition parties and leaders latched on to Lekhi’s statement and said that it was an ‘admission of the Narendra Modi’s government’s misuse of the ED to intimidate its opponents’.
