The party has apprehensions over Patel's election prospects if more MLAs defect.

The search at the Minister's posh residence in the city's upscale northwest suburb and his deluxe room at the resort caught the ruling party in Karnataka unaware and led to condemnation. Siddaramaiah accused the Modi government of using the Income Tax Department for its "political conspiracies".

Congress leaders, including Water resources minister M B Patil cried hoarse on the raids and alleged that it was a political vendetta played by the Central Government at the behest of the State BJP.

"The government is using the state and central investigative agencies by getting such raids conducted. We will not bow down to such intimidation". "The IT officials should have taken help from local police than asking the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel to provide security to them", he said.

Yesterday Income Tax Department conducted searches at 64 locations and properties linked to the Minister in connection with the case.
