Maharashtra Social Justice Minister Dhananjay Munde, who was surrounded by the rape charges, is currently relieved. 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.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, Pawar said, 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.
Statewide movement of BJP Mahila Morcha from Monday
The BJP's Mahila Morcha will start a statewide agitation from Monday demanding the resignation of Dhananjay Munde in the rape case. State BJP Mahila Morcha president Umatai Khapre said, "On the one hand, a power law is being enacted in the state to prevent atrocities on women. On the other hand, efforts are being made to save the minister on the allegation of a misdemeanor on the cabinet minister." Therefore Munde should be removed from the post of minister.
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.
Maha Vikas Aghadi government will not be affected by strong allegations: Raut
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Friday said the Maha Vikas 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.
