Adding to the list of the political leaders facing Enforcement Directorate (ED) action, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar and his nephew and former deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar along with NCP leader Jayant Patil are the latest politicos to face ED heat. The agency has registered a case of money laundering against the three including 70 others in connection with a scam relating to Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank (MSCB).

The Bombay High Court directed police to register an FIR against the senior NCP leaders. The move comes barely a month before the Maharashtra Assembly Elections, which would take place on October 21, 2019. ED on Tuesday filed the case as the senior leaders have been accused of causing losses to the tune of Rs 1,000 crore to MSCB between 2007 and 2011.

As per a report in News18, It is alleged that there were irregularities in loan disbursements to cooperative sugar factories, and that loans were sanctioned despite them having weak financials. In many cases, loans were sanctioned without any collateral. The cooperative sugar factories were allegedly sold to close relatives of certain politicians.

MSCB is the apex bank of all the co-operative banks in Maharashtra. The bank suffered losses to the tune of billions for several years. However, it all came out after the inspection report of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD).

When Lata Mangeshkar got offended by Dilip Kumar and didn’t speak to him for 13 years

Late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. She would also tie rakhi to the latter.

Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?

The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.

After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”

To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”

On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.

BJP National Secretary Pankaja Munde said even Prime Minister Narendra Modi wouldn’t be able to end her political career if she lived in people’s hearts and minds. Munde said the same on Tuesday while addressing a public rally — part of PM Modi’s birthday celebrations for a fortnight across Maharashtra — at Ambajogai in Maharashtra’s Beed district.

Munde said, “If I live in people’s mind and heart, even Modiji cannot end my political career… Dynasty politics has been prevailing in the Congress party. Modiji, however, wants to end the dynasty rule… I hail from a political family, but if I live in your mind and heart, nobody will be able to finish (end the career) me. If I live in people’s minds and hearts, even Modiji cannot finish my political career.”
