ED summoned Raj Thackeray to silence him according to NCP leader Dhananjay Munde

Maharashtra Legislative Council Opposition leader and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Dhananjay Munde on Thursday slammed the central government over Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) summons to Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray in connection with a money laundering case.  

While alleging that the “undeclared emergency” has become more visible in the country, Munde said that ED summoned Thackeray in order to silence him ahead of the upcoming Maharashtra assembly elections which are due in October this year.  

If you speak against us (Modi and Shah). We will silence you by leaving ED, Income Tax and CBI after you. The undeclared emergency in our country has become more apparent now,” said NCP leader Dhananjay Munde.

The MNS chief became a staunch critic of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) while attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah during the 2019 Lok Sabha election campaign.
