ED Summon: Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray extends support to brother Raj Thackeray

While talking to the media at Matoshree, Uddhav Thackeray said that he doesn’t expect any solid outcome from the inquiry


Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday came out in support of his cousin - Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray – who has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with an IL&FS related case. 

While talking to the media at Matoshree, Uddhav Thackeray said that he doesn’t expect any solid outcome from the inquiry. 

Raj Thackeray will appear before ED on August 22 while the central investigation agency inquired Unmesh Joshi on Monday for nearly seven hours. Joshi had said that he will fully cooperate with the investigation. 

ED is probing the alleged irregularities in loan and equity investment made by Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) in Kohinoor CTNL – a company founded by Unmesh Joshi, son of former Maharashtra CM Manohar Joshi.

Earlier, MNS had called for a ‘bandh’ while labelling ED’s move to summon Thackeray as “political vendetta”. However, the strike was called off after Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis warned MNS workers of “consequences” if people faced any inconvenience.
