No need to worry if innocent: CM Fadnavis to Raj Thackeray

While speaking on Enforcement Directorate (ED)’s move to summon Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday said that if the MNS chief has done nothing wrong, he shouldn’t worry. 

Unmesh Joshi, son of former Maharashtra Chief Minister and senior Shiv Sena leader Manohar Joshi, appeared before ED officers in connection with the central investigation agency’s probe regarding Kohinoor building case. The ED has also summoned Raj Thackeray for the same on August 22. 

While the opposition in Maharashtra has accused the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of ‘misusing’ ED in order to silence its critics, CM Fadnavis said that he learned about ED’s move to summon Thackeray through the media. 

Earlier in the day, MNS had threatened to carry out a ‘bandh’ in Thane claiming that this was a “political vendetta” against Thackeray. MNS said that if there is any mishap, the government will be responsible for the same.
