Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis slammed the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar for stooping so low? over the alleged threats to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Fadnavis made the remark when Sharad Pawar on Sunday claimed that there was no substance in the assassination threats to Modi. The NCP supremo asserted that the letter (which was recovered by cops mentioning death threats to PM and Fadnavis both) was simply being used by the BJP to gain sympathy of the people.

Pawar told reporters, The BJP says there was a threat letter. I spoke to a retired police officer, who had earlier worked for CID. He says that there’s no substance in the letter. The letter is being used to gain people’s sympathy.

Fadnavis, in his tweet, wrote, It is very unfortunate that Sharad Pawarji is raising doubts about the communication seized by the police which reveals the plot to assassinate PM Narendra Modiji. He is the leader of our nation and not just of a political party.

He further tweeted, @PawarSpeaks is not expected to stoop down to this level. Police has all the evidences and truth will prevail.

He wrote, Pawarji should play politics of the nation and not politics of hatred.

The letter also stated, We are thinking along the lines of another Rajiv Gandhi type incident. For the uninitiated, the ?threat? letter was recovered from Rona Wilson, one of the five people arrested from Mumbai, Nagpur and Delhi in connection with Bhima-Koregaon violence in the district that took place in December 2017 in Pune.

Narhari Zirwal – the Deputy Speaker in Maharashtra Assembly – on Saturday (June 25) issued disqualification notice to 16 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs.

The MLAs, who are being led by Eknath Shinde, are currently staying at Guwahati in Assam. These MLAs are supposed to file their written replies by 5:30 pm on Monday (June 27).  If the MLAs are disqualified, Shinde will lose his legislator’s post and that, crucially, will see his revolt fail.

The Shiv Sena had moved the original notice against 12 rebel MLAs, including Shinde, late Thursday evening and added another four names on Friday.

Owing to escalating tensions between Maharashtra’s ruling coalition partner Shiv Sena and its internal rebel group, earlier in the day, the police in neighbouring Thane district, which is a bastion of Shiv Sena’s rebel leader Eknath Shinde, imposed Section 144. The order in Thane will remain in force till June 30.

He said: “Outside Maharashtra, you are eagles. But the people’s patience is wearing thin. Right now, Shiv Sainiks have not come out on the streets. If they do, the streets will be on fire.”

Even as Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena is seeking disqualification of its rebel MLAs from the assembly, the rebel MLAs led by Eknath Shinde on Saturday (June 25) named their group as ‘Shiv Sena Balasaheb.’

Rebel Shiv Sena MLA Deepak Keserkar said: “Our group will be called Shiv Sena Balasaheb. We will not merge with any party.” Kesarkar has also hinted at a possible alliance with the BJP. “We have only two options remaining in Maharashtra; to go with either the NCP-Congress or the BJP, otherwise the government cannot be formed. However, the question of allying with the BJP will be decided by Eknath Shinde. Whatever decision he takes, we will support it.”

Meanwhile Maharashtra Congress leader Ashok Chavan said: “Until it gets legal authorisation from the speaker, such type of groups will not be authorized.”
