Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Monday wrote a letter to Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) while demanding to install Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) nameplate in Marathi. The MNS has intensified their demand for ED to have a nameplate put up in the regional language and handed over a letter to BMC A ward office in this regard. 

Along with ED, MNS leader Arvind Gawde sent the copies of the letter to the A ward officer and district collector. The MNS insists that ED should follow the rules under Maharashtra Shops and Establishment Act which narrates that the nameplates of any shop or establishment should be in Marathi. 

This happened after ED summoned MNS chief Raj Thackeray earlier in connection with its ongoing probe regarding alleged irregularities in loan and equity investment made by Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services (IL&FS) in Kohinoor CTNL – a company founded by Unmesh Joshi, son of former Maharashtra CM Manohar Joshi.

In retaliation to ED's summon to Raj Thackeray, the agitated MNS slapped a notice to ED showcasing its failure to put up a nameplate in Marathi.

A day after ED grilled Thackeray for nearly nine hours on August 22, MNS issued a “notice” against the central investigation agency for its failure to put up a signboard in Marathi. ED’s office in Mumbai is situated at Ballard Pier in South Mumbai.
