The pressure of resignation in the case of rape on Maharashtra minister Dhananjay Munde is increasing. NCP supremo Sharad Pawar may have changed his stand but BJP is firm on the demand for Munde's resignation.
State BJP President Chandrakant Patil on Saturday questioned Sharad Pawar's U-turn and demanded Munde's resignation. He said that the BJP Mahila Morcha will start a statewide agitation against it from Monday. Addressing reporters in Pune on Saturday, Patil said that a day before, Sharad Pawar, who described the matter as serious, has taken a sudden U-turn. Pawar's support of Munde is shocking.
Taking a U-turn on Friday, NCP supremo Sharad Pawar said that at the moment, immediate resignation is not required. Because yesterday was different, today's picture is different. At the same time, NCP has also been divided into two parts regarding Munde. The faction opposing Munde's resignation was overshadowed. It is believed that due to this Pawar had to take a soft stand.
Sharad Pawar took a U-turn
Let us know that Pawar told reporters on Friday that the woman who accused Munde has been accused of blackmailing a former MLA and BJP leader Krishna Hegde. Apart from this, the former officer of an airline company is also among those accused. Therefore, there is a need to consider this issue in a different way.
He said that when Dhananjay Munde had put his side on Thursday, the whole picture did not come to him at that time. Now new information has come out, so it would be unfair to take a full investigation and decision without facts. Earlier on Thursday, a meeting of NCP leaders was held at the house of former Union Minister Praful Patel late in the night in which Munde's resignation was discussed. It is believed that after this, it has been decided to retain Munde's ministerial post.
The victim's lawyer threatened, sought security
Here, Ramesh Tripathi, the lawyer of the young woman who accused Munde of rape, is threatened with death. He has complained to the ACP and the Home Minister demanding tax protection. He said, this is not my personal case, I will fight another lawyer if not the victim's case. His client's accusation of Honeytrap is false.
Mahavikas Aghadi government strong, allegations will not have effect: Raut
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Friday said that Mahavikas Aghadi government of Maharashtra is strong and blaming some ministers will not affect its stability. The BJP is demanding the removal of the two ministers after NCP minister Dhananjay Munde was accused of rape and the arrest of another minister Nawab Malik's son-in-law by the NCB. Raut said after meeting Pawar on Friday that the job of the opposition is to ask for his resignation every day. If this tradition is to be followed then Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also have to resign every day for the Kisan movement.
