Shivkumar is not new to controversies. Earlier in August, income tax department raided his residence for alleged tax evasion. The IT department had also seized Rs. 10 crore during the raids conducted at his Delhi residence and other locations.

Earlier this month he and his family were questioned by the income tax officials over seized documents and related assets including jewellery, cash and other properties.

Shivkumar had also hosted the Gujarat MLAs who were whisked away from Gujarat in middle of one of the worst floods in Gujarat prior to Rajya Sabha election to save Ahmed Patel’s seat.
