raut: Central agencies being misused to attack, topple Maharashtra govt: Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday accused the BJP-led Union government of using central agencies to try and topple Maharashtra’s ruling coalition Maha Vikas Agadhi (MVA) — comprising Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress.
“Central agencies are troubling our party leaders and pressure is being created using these agencies. Some BJP leaders are saying that the MVA govt will fall on March 10. All these rumors started after I wrote to Venkaiah Naidu,” said Raut, referring to a letter he wrote to the Vice-President wherein he claimed that some “persons” had approached him for his help to topple the Uddhav Thackeray-led state government.
Raut claimed he was contacted by some BJP leaders to shift allegiance and warned he would have to pay a price for not doing so. “Soon after this, Enforcement Directorate (ED) started targeting people close to me,” he said, adding that neither the coalition nor its leaders would “bow” before such pressure tactics.
“Maharashtra government will firmly stay … I rang up home minister Amit Shah and asked him if there was some enmity against me. I told him if there is a problem with me, arrest me but don’t trouble my friends and family members. Enforcement Directorate can come to my place and arrest me,” he added.
He further said that the Thackeray family is being accused of building 19 bungalows in Alibaug. “I will take all journalists to these bungalows for a picnic, if the bungalows are not found there, then those (BJP) levelling allegations should be shown their place,” said Raut.
“Shiv Sena is not scared of anyone. Those harassing us will be dealt with after 2024,” he added.
The senior leader further said that he would soon submit “all the papers” in connection with the PMC Bank fraud case to Chief minister Uddhav Thackeray. “BJP’s Kirit Somaiya and his son should be arrested in connection with the PMC bank fraud case. To whom does Nikon Infra Construction company belong? PMC case accused Rakesh Wadhwan and Somaiya’s son are partners in this company,” said the senior Shiv Sena leader.
