Two more Maharashtra state ministers would have to resign in next fortnight, claimed BJP state president Chandrakant Pandit, saying it’s a “fit case for President’s rule.”
"Two state ministers will have to resign in another 15 days. Don't ask me the names. Someone will go to court and then (Anil) Parab will have to resign," said Pandit without venturing to name who they would be.
So far ex home minister Anil Deshmukh has resigned after the Bombay High Court ordered a CBI probe into the allegations which ex Mumbai police chief Param Bir Singh has levelled against him.
His remarks came a day after suspended cop Sachin Vaze in a letter claimed former state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had demanded Rs 2 crore from him to continue his service in the Mumbai police and another minister Anil Parab asked him to collect money from contractors.
Pandit said it was an “organised crime” and that “if the evidence comes out on paper, provisions of the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) will have to be invoked.”
"You can't run the government, you fail in handling the Covid situation, you run an extortion racket and then blame the Centre. Why don't you allow the Centre to run the government”.
