On Thursday, Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil conveyed that “ two more state ministers will have to resign in 15 days and that the state was a "fit case for President's rule".” This statement was made by him the day after suspended cop Sachin Waze in a letter said that the “former state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had demanded Rs 2 crore from him to continue his service in the Mumbai police and another minister Anil Parab asked him to collect money from contractors.” And whereby, on Monday a resignation as Home Minister was given by Deshmukh. This resignation was accorded after the Bombay High Court gave an order to CBI to investigate the corruption allegations leveled against him by former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh. However, Prab, a Shiv Sena leader, has refuted the accusations. Further, while conversing with the Reporters on Thursday, Patil said that "what is in store in future is the common man's guess, Two state ministers will have to resign in another 15 days. Some people will go to court against these ministers and then they will have to quit.” He commented this without naming out a specific person.
Patil further said that “ there is a possibility that the allegations against Transport Minister Anil Parab may also be clubbed with the probe into charges against Anil Deshmukh. Maharashtra is a fit case for President's rule, adding BJP was not making demand”. He further pronounced that “from what is going on in the state, experts should explain what else is needed to impose the President's rule. If you want to criticize the Centre for everything, why not give the state administration to the central government?"
Patil then accused Anil Deshmukh by saying that “he was a "hypocrite" as he had moved the Supreme Court against the Bombay HC order for a CBI probe into the allegations against him.” He further added that “In the resignation letter, he (Deshmukh) says he is quitting to facilitate a free and fair probe, and the next day he moves the apex court against the probe. The MVA government (comprising the Shiv Sena, NCP, and Congress) in Maharashtra defended Waze so aggressively during the state's budget session that the Assembly had to be adjourned nine times. Now you don't trust him.”
Patil also claimed that “the MVA government was gratifying in an organized crime. If the evidence comes out on paper, provisions of the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) will have to be invoked.”
