Maharashtra govt firmly in saddle, will respond to BJP's 'falsehood': Sanjay Raut
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut stated the BJP in Maharashtra was under the incorrect influence that it could shake the state MVA government by levelling "fake allegations" against legislators and ministers.
The Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA- comprising the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress) has "determined to fight back" and reply to such methods to make certain balance in the state, Raut, who's in New Delhi, instructed a information channel. He stated NCP president Sharad Pawar become like a "father figure" to Maharashtra Chief Minister and Sena head Uddhav Thackeray, amid hypothesis in state political circles over differences among the MVA allies.
Maharashtra executive firmly in saddle, will reply to BJP's 'falsehood': Sanjay Raut"It is not possible to weaken the MVA by implicating legislators and ministers in fake instances with the assist of critical investigating agencies."
"Delhi has been dug up for the Central Vista venture and traffic routes had been changed, however the BJP need to understand that the route of the Maharashtra government can not be changed," the Rajya Sabha member stated. Notably, the state BJP unit lately wrote to Union Home Minister Amit Shah for a CBI investigation against Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and Shiv Sena minister Anil Parab into the allegations levelled towards them by dismissed Mumbai cop Sachin Waze.
Referring to it, Raut stated if the BJP feels it can destabilise and weaken the MVA with such methods, "it is wrong". "It is not possible to weaken the MVA by implicating legislators and ministers in fake instances with the assist of central investigating agencies," the Shiv Sena's chief spokesperson asserted. He stated there are no issues among the MVA partners.
"The MVA has come to be stronger after the one-on-one meeting of Uddhav Thackeray with Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he stated. Asked about the meeting between Sharad Pawar and Uddhav Thackeray held in advance this week, Raut stated it's been determined to fight again all fake allegations and reply to the charges (levelled by opposition).
Likening the MVA allies to 'Pandavas' (characters of the epic Mahabharat), the Sena chief stated "the Pandavas have been guided by Lord Krishna and stood for the truth, while 'Kauravas' stood for falsehood and sought energy by any means".
Asked if he was calling the opposition BJP as 'Kauravas', he said, "The Kauravas were a symbol (of falsehood). I am not relating to them as Kauravas."When asked if he had come to Delhi to fulfill the Congress leadership, Raut replied, "I may meet, but all these meetings are invisible."
To a question on why Maharashtra Governor B S Koshyari has to remind the state authorities to preserve the Assembly Speaker's election, Raut quipped, "I wonder why Governor Koshyari forgets to sign the appointments of 12 members to the state Legislative Council (under the governor's quota)."
The MVA government and the governor were at loggerheads over the appointment of MLC, with the former accusing Koshyari of purposely sitting at the file cleared by the state Cabinet in November.
