Maharashtra Politics: Chandrakant Patil alleged that Anil Deshmukh is a “hypocrite” as he went to the Supreme Court against the Bombay High Court’s order of CBI inquiry.
Mumbai. BJP’s Maharashtra unit chief Chandrakant Patil on Thursday claimed that two more ministers of the state will have to resign within 15 days and the state has “a suitable position to implement President’s rule”. He made this remark when a day before suspended policeman Sachin Waje claimed in a letter that former state minister of state Anil Deshmukh had asked for two crore rupees to continue his service in Mumbai Police. And another minister Anil Parab asked them to collect money from contractors.
Senior NCP leader Deshmukh resigned from the post of Home Minister on Monday. The Bombay High Court has ordered a CBI inquiry into the allegations of corruption leveled against him by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh. Shiv Sena leader Parab has dismissed the allegations. In a conversation with reporters here on Thursday, Patil claimed without naming anyone, “Two ministers of the state will have to resign in the coming 15 days.” Some people will go to court against these ministers and then they will have to resign. ”
Patil said that it may happen that the allegations against Transport Minister Anil Parab should also be included in the investigation of the allegations against Anil Deshmukh. The BJP leader said, “Maharashtra is suitable for imposing President’s rule”. He said that his party is not making this demand. He said that from what is going on in the state, experts can tell what else is needed to impose President’s rule. He asked, “If you want to hold the Center responsible for everything, then why don’t the administration of the state hand it over to the Central Government.”
Patil alleged that Anil Deshmukh is a “hypocrite” as he went to the Supreme Court against the Bombay High Court’s order of CBI inquiry. He said, “In the resignation letter, Deshmukh said that he is resigning for an independent and impartial inquiry and the next day he approaches the Supreme Court against the investigation.” The Aghadi government aggressively defended the waje during the state budget session. He said, “Now you don’t believe him”. Patil alleged that the MVA government is involved in “organized crime”. He claimed, “If documentary evidence comes, the provisions of the Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act (MCOCA) will apply.”
