Devendra Fadnavis should give CDR to police: Congress leader Sachin Sawant on SUV bomb scare case

Devendra Fadnavis should give CDR to police: Congress leader Sachin Sawant on SUV bomb scare case

On Tuesday, March 16, the state Congress leader Sachin Sawant called upon the former CM Devendra Fadnavis to hand over the Call Detail Record (CDR) to the police or investigating agencies.

State Congress General Secretary and Spokesperson Sachin Sawant said that the BJP has openly stated in the Maharashtra Assembly last week that he is in possession of the CDR pertaining to the abandoned SUV with gelatin sticks and threat letter found outside industrialist Mukesh Ambani's residence.

Sawant said that in a democracy, the Constitution is supreme and the rule of law and justice are equal for all, including Fadnavis.

“Leaders must set example before people. There can't be one law for common man and another for leaders. I feel confident that Hon'ble LOP who had been CM himself will definitely think over this," wrote Sachin Sawant on Twitter.

The Hon' Leader of Opposition, who has also been a former Chief minister, should exercise his constitutional responsibilities and hand over the CDR to the investigators and help book the culprits, Sawant appealed.

He pointed out that since it is illegal to get anybody's CDR, it becomes Fadnavis' duty to disclose the sources from where he acquired it to the investigating agencies, and then they would probe further in the matter.

On March 9, during the Budget Session, Fadnavis had said he was in possession of the CDR and dared the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government to investigate him, even as House went into turmoil.

Later, to demands by the government side that he should hand over the potential evidence to the investigators, Fadnavis retorted that if he was required to help the government, then what is the government supposed to do.

Hence, it is incumbent upon him should provide the CDR or all information pertaining to this case to the probe agencies and set the right example, stated Sawant.

The SUV case has been escalating into a major political issue with the arrest and suspension of Sachin Vaze this week.
