Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh may be resigned. The meeting is going on at the house of NCP chief Sharad Pawar after the Bombay High Court ordered the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry against Deshmukh. In this meeting, a decision can be taken regarding the resignation of Anil Deshmukh. The High Court has ordered the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry against Anil Deshmukh in 15 days. The court says that it will be decided only after the CBI’s investigation to register an FIR against Anil Deshmukh. The demand for the resignation of Anil Deshmukh, surrounded by allegations of recovery of Rs 100 crore, has once again intensified following the High Court order.
Former CM and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis has demanded that Anil Deshmukh should resign till the investigation is complete. Devendra Fadnavis said, ‘The Bombay High Court has ordered the CBI to investigate because the police could not take action on the complaint of the Mumbai Police Commissioner. The CBI will now investigate the Mumbai Police recovery racket and allegations of ministers being involved in it. In this case, Deshmukh should resign on the basis of morality. If he does not do so, it is Uddhav Thackeray himself who should remove him from his post.
Deshmukh shocked by HC, order for CBI inquiry, said – police will not be impartial
Earlier on Monday morning, the Bombay High Court ordered the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry against the state home minister. The High Court has ordered an immediate preliminary inquiry into the allegations leveled against him by the former Commissioner of Mumbai Police. On behalf of the court, the investigating agency has been given 15 days time for this entire process. The court has given this order while hearing the petition filed on behalf of advocate Jayashree Patil. Along with this, the court has also said that Anil Deshmukh is the home minister of the state. In such a situation, there is little chance of a fair investigation against him by the Maharashtra Police.
