Mumbai, April 8
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Thursday claimed “dirty politics” was being performed out to destabilise the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) authorities in Maharashtra and asserted that such makes an attempt is not going to succeed.
Raut’s remarks got here a day after suspended cop Sachin Waze in a letter claimed former state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had demanded Rs 2 crore from him to proceed his service within the Mumbai police and one other minister Anil Parab requested him to acquire cash from contractors.
Waze was arrested final month by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) within the case of an explosives-laden SUV discovered close to industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence in south Mumbai and the dying of businessman Mansukh Hiran.
Parab, a Shiv Sena chief, rejected Waze’s claims on Wednesday and stated he was prepared to face any probe into the allegations. He swore within the identify of Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray and asserted that he has not executed something unsuitable.
Talking to reporters right here on Thursday, Raut stated there’s a new pattern of getting letters written from the accused locked up in jail.
“Never before has the country seen dirty politics being played out in such a manner, like indulging in character assassination using investigation agencies and IT cells of political parties, and letters from accused locked up in jail,” the Rajya Sabha member stated.
Raut stated makes an attempt to weaken and destabilise the MVA authorities “will not be successful”.
“I know Anil Parab. He is a staunch Shiv Sainik and will never swear wrongly in the name of Balasaheb Thackeray,” Raut stated.
