Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Thursday claimed “soiled politics” was being performed out to destabilise the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) authorities in Maharashtra and asserted that such makes an attempt won’t succeed.
Raut’s remarks got here a day after suspended cop Sachin Waze in a letter claimed former state Residence 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 gather cash from contractors.
Waze was arrested final month by the Nationwide Investigation Company (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 mentioned he was able to face any probe into the allegations. He swore within the identify of Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray and asserted that he has not carried out something improper.
Speaking to reporters right here on Thursday, Raut mentioned there’s a new pattern of getting letters written from the accused locked up in jail.
“By no means earlier than has the nation seen soiled politics being performed out in such a fashion, like indulging in character assassination utilizing investigation businesses and IT cells of political events, and letters from accused locked up in jail,” the Rajya Sabha member mentioned.
Raut mentioned makes an attempt to weaken and destabilise the MVA authorities “won’t achieve success”.
“I do know Anil Parab. He’s a staunch Shiv Sainik and can by no means swear wrongly within the identify of Balasaheb Thackeray,” Raut mentioned.
