Antilia Case: Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut blames misuse of central agencies to impose Presidential Rule in Maharashtra

SS MP Sanjay Raut reacted on the issue of resignation of Anil Deshmukh being raised repeatedly.

Amid rise in demand of resignation of Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh after being accused by former Mumbai Police chief Param Bir Singh for malpractices, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has reacted to the issue and has accused the misuse of central agencies to impose President’s Rule in the state.

News agency ANI quoted Raut’s statement on the issue, “If someone is attempting to get President’s Rule imposed in Maharashtra by misusing central agencies, then I am warning them – you yourself will get burnt in that fire”.



Sanjay Raut further said, “If NCP chief (Sharad Pawar) has decided that the allegations should be probed, then what is wrong? Anyone can level any allegation. If people take ministers’ resignation just like that then it will be difficult to run the government”.

Raut also answered to those who are continuously demanding HM’s resignation. He said, “HM (Anil Deshmukh) said that the contents of ‘letter bomb’ should be probed, CM should probe it. NCP chief said that it should be investigated. If the govt is ready to accept the challenge of probing this, then why is the issue of resignation being raised repeatedly?”


The controversy raised after former Mumbai Police chief Param Bir Singh wrote a letter to CM Uddhav Thackeray, making serious allegations against Home Minister of the state Anil Deshmukh for ordering API Sachin Waze to collect Rs 100 crore every month from various bars and restaurants around the city.

Earlier, Parma Bir Singh was removed from his post of Mumbai Police Commissioner for allegedly mishandling the Antilia bomb scare case. Currently the case is being probed by the central agency National Investigation Agency (NIA).
