Thursday, 8th April 2021

Shiv Sena has hurled allegations against the Centre stating its law and investigation agencies were being misemployed to domineer its political adversaries.

In their local publication Saamana, the Shiv Sena, that shares power in the state with the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress, took out an editorial that said, on one hand the Bombay High Court pulled up the former chief of police Param Bir Singh over his alleged claims of corruption against the then home minister of Maharashtra, Anil Deshmukh, on the other, in a parallel petition that was filed by Jayshri Patil, it took acknowledgement of the charges.

According to the claims made through the editorial, “Nobody is above law. But, it is now clear that the law and central investigation agencies are being misused to corner political rivals.”

The editorial which reverberated and reflected the sentiments of the party further said, “It is a cause of concern that constitutional authorities are getting involved in weakening the Maharashtra government in such a manner.”

On Monday, the High Court had issued directives to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to carry out a prefatory investigation in the course of the next two weeks, of the charges of corruption that have been levelled against NCP leader Anil Deshmukh by Partam Bir Singh, the former commissioner of police in Mumbai, which then led to Deshmukh tendering in his resignation from the post of home minister of the state.

Pleas that were filed by Singh himself, lawyer Ghanshyam Upadhyay and local teacher Mohan Bhide and city-based lawyer Jayshri Patil, were being heard by the High Court, of which Patil’s plea stirred them into calling for the CBI inquiry.

According to the editorial, BJP leaders in the Opposition in Maharashtra have been heard commenting on which leader is next in line to put in a resignation. Shiv Sena alleged that such remarks would not be bandied around if they “weren't confident that the central probe agencies were working for them. This is a conspiracy to defame the state.”

In an earlier statement also they claimed that various allegations by Opposition leaders against ministers and Chief Ministers of their party, had led them to quit.

Citing the instance of the Chief Minister of the state of Karnataka, B S Yediyurappa, where he got a stay from the Supreme Court in the criminal proceedings against him in a 10-year-old corruption case, Shiv Sena questioned the disparity in Anil Deshmukhs’s case.
