Maharashtra: Entry ban of BJP leader in Kolhapur! Mumbai Police put under house arrest, why is Thackeray government afraid of Kirit Somaiya?
BJP leader Kirit Somaiya's entry ban has been ordered in Kolhapur. This order has been given by Kolhapur Collector Rahul Rekhawar. Meanwhile, Mumbai Police barred Kirit Somaiya from leaving his Mulund residence for four hours in the afternoon. Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis opposed this by tweeting and called this detention of Kirit Somaiya illegal.
Meanwhile, Kirit Somaiya made a tweet in Marathi at 3:24 pm. In the tweet, he said, "The Thackeray government has come down on Dadagiri. The police is the only police around my house. All this has happened to cover the scam of Hasan Mushrif NCP, to stop my visit to Kolhapur. I have been arrested at home. This has happened on the orders of the Home Minister (Maharashtra). I will leave Mulund's Neelam Nagar at 5.30 am. First I will go for Girgaum Chowpatty Ganesh Visarjan and from there I will leave CSMT at 7.15 PM for Kolhapur by Mahalaxmi Express. "
Thackeray government should announce that there is emergency in the state- BJP state president
After this, state BJP President Chandrakant Patil made a statement that terrorists are roaming freely in Mumbai, but the state government uses force against those who raise their voice against wrong things. Is Kirit Somaiya a rapist? Are you terrorists? After all, why does the state government not officially declare that there is an emergency in the state. Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Council Pravin Darekar said that just as the arrest of Union Minister Narayan Rane was wrong, in the same way what is happening with Kirit Somaiya is also happening wrong.
Kirit Somaiya adamant, left for Kolhapur
In the midst of this whole incident, Kirit Somaiya kept arguing with the police that when the Kolhapur Collector has banned me from entering there, why is he not being allowed to leave the house in Mumbai? They will go for Ganesh Visarjan. After this Kirit Somaiya went towards Girgaum Chowpatty for Ganesh immersion. From there he went straight to CSMT station. Before catching the Mahalaxmi Express for Kolhapur, he was once again stopped by the police at the station and stopped going to Kolhapur citing security. He was told that NCP leader and Village Development Minister Hassan Mushrif's workers could attack him in Kolhapur. Therefore, keeping in mind the safety, they should not go. But Kirit Somaiya was adamant to go to Kolhapur. He said that he is going to see Ambe Mata. Mahalaxmi Express reached Thane from CSMT. There also Thane police asked him to get off the train.
Thackeray government is afraid of Somaiya because of this
Somaiya has filed several complaints against Rural Development Minister Hassan Mushrif in different investigating agencies. He and his family have been accused of money laundering of 127 crores. Somaiya has announced that he will visit the sugar factories of NCP leaders including Mushrif and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar to investigate the ongoing economic misconduct there. He has also announced to visit Korlai village of Alibaug, where huge land including 19 bungalows has been bought in the name of Rashmi Thackeray a few years back.
Kirit Somaiya told our affiliate channel TIP on the train while going to Kolhapur that, 'I don't think the Thackeray government will allow me to reach Kolhapur. More obstacles will come on my way. Had I not been given Z security by the Modi government, I would have been arrested by the Thackeray government today. This Maha Vikas Aghadi government led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray does not want me to reach the Kagal police station in Kolhapur. I can present the evidence I have against the minister of this scam government. But no matter how much trouble comes, I will take Hasan Mushrif to jail.
What has the Kolhapur Collector said in his order?
Kolhapur Collector Rahul Rekhawar has said in his order that Kirit Somaiya is going to come here on September 20 and go to many places. Meanwhile, Hasan Mushrif's supporters are also adamant here that they will not allow Somaiya to roam in Kolhapur. Rekhawar has said in his order that there is a danger of breach of law and order. The collector has warned that if Kirit Somaiya comes here despite the entry ban, action will be taken against him.
