BJP National President JP Nadda has expressed displeasure on the arrest of Union Minister Narayan Rane. Narayan Rane was arrested by Ratnigiri Police on Tuesday for his alleged derogatory remarks against Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

Regarding the arrest of Union Minister Narayan Rane, JP Nadda tweeted, ‘The arrest of Union Minister Narayan Rane ji by the Maharashtra government is a violation of constitutional values. We will neither be scared nor suppressed by such action. These people are troubled by the immense support the BJP is getting in the Jan-Aashirvad Yatra. We will continue to fight democratically, the yatra will continue.

Let us inform that Union Minister Narayan Rane had filed a petition in Ratnagiri Court for anticipatory bail to avoid arrest. Which was rejected by the court. After this Narayan Rane has reached the Bombay High Court demanding quashing of the FIR registered against him, but here too he did not get any immediate relief.

High Court refused urgent hearing

Rane’s lawyer had demanded an immediate hearing from the High Court but the court refused. “File an application for urgent hearing before the registry department and then we will consider,” the court said. The petition has challenged the FIRs lodged against Rane in Mahad in Pune, Nashik and Raigad.

What did Narayan Rane say?

Rane has been embroiled in controversies for his remarks against Chief Minister Thackeray. Rane had claimed that in his Independence Day address, Thackeray forgot how many years have passed since the country’s independence. It is shameful that the Chief Minister does not know how many years have passed since independence, Rane said during the ‘Jan Ashirwad Yatra’ in Raigad district on Monday. During the speech, he was seen looking back and asking about this. Had I been there, I would have given him a hard slap.
