“This Is Injustice”: Sharad Pawar raises probe against ally with PM

In a meeting today with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar raised the central probe agencies’ action against leaders of Maharashtra’s ruling coalition and other politicians bitterly opposed to the BJP.

 

The two spoke for around 20 minutes at PM Modi’s office in parliament, hours after the Enforcement Directorate seized the properties of Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut’s wife Varsha Raut and a relative of Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi minister Satyendra Jain in an alleged money laundering case.

“On what basis was action taken against Sanjay Raut? This is injustice. What’s the provocation for action against Raut – just because he is making some statements?” Sharad Pawar told reporters as he shared what he had discussed with PM Modi.

 

“We will fight together in next elections…the MVA (Maha Vikas Aghadi). There is a stability, I am answering these questions for the last two and-a-half years,” Mr Pawar said.
