‘Everything can’t be made public’: Amit Shah on reported meeting with Pawar
At a time when Congress, Shiv Sena and the NCP-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra faces sharp criticism from the BJP over former Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh’s allegations against State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday refrained from confirming the reports of his meeting with NCP supremo Sharad Pawar, saying that “everything can’t be made public”.
On March 25, Deshmukh had written a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to investigate the corrupt malpractices allegations levelled against him by Param Bir Singh.
Singh had written a letter to Thackeray alleging that Deshmukh had indulged in “malpractices” and asked suspended Assistant Police Inspector Sachin Waze to collect Rs 100 crore every month.
Following corruption allegations levelled against Deshmukh, on March 24, a delegation of BJP leaders, led by Leader of Opposition in the Maharashtra Assembly, Devendra Fadnavis met the Governor and handed over a memorandum, stating that the Vikas Aghadi government has lost the moral ground to remain in power.
