Maharashtra Government's Sole Agenda Is Extortion, Has No Moral Right To Govern: BJP
A day after suspended Mumbai police officer Sachin Waze levelled serious corruption charges against former state home minister Anil Deshmukh, the BJP today flayed the Maharashtra government alleging that its sole agenda is extorting money and it has no moral right to govern.
Sachin Waze had on Wednesday claimed that Anil Deshmukh had demanded Rs 2 crore from him to continue his service in Mumbai police and alleged state minister Anil Parab asked him to collect money from some contractors in Mumbai. Anil Parab rubbished Sachin Waze's claim.
Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters in Delhi, senior BJP leader and Union minister Prakash Javadekar hit out at Shiv Sena chief and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray for defending Sachin Waze.
He said Uddhav Thackeray while defending Sachin Waze had stated that the police officer is not Osama bin Laden. Similarly his party leader Sanjay Raut had said that a promising, capable, officer was harmed, Mr Javadekar noted.
