Mumbai: NCP leader Ajit Pawar, on Sunday wondered why the Enforcement Directorate (ED) repeatedly wants to investigate Shiv Sena national spokesperson Sanjay Raut. Congress spokesman Sachin Sawant said the probe agency conducting a search at Sanjay Raut’s residence in Mumbai depicts a “sorry picture” of democracy and alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wants to “silence” all the Opposition parties.
“Many people got notices from the Income Tax, ED, and the Central Bureau of Investigation. Only Sanjay Raut will be able to tell why the probe agency (ED) wants to investigate him repeatedly,” Ajit Pawar touring flood-affected areas in Maharashtra said while interacting with the media.”
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP Supriya Sule said this issue will be Ajit raised in Parliament.
Supriya Sule expressed confidence there will be no injustice and that Sanjay Raut will cooperate with the federal probe agency.
On Sunday morning, ED officials, accompanied by Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel, reached Sanjay Raut’s ‘Maitri’ bungalow located in suburban Bhandup and began the raid.
The Thackeray loyalist had denied any wrongdoing and alleged that he was being targeted due to political vendetta.
