Mumbai, June 3 (ANI): Maharashtra Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Awadhut Wagh on Tuesday said the death of Rural Development Minister Gopinath Munde’s death might be a planned conspiracy, and demanded a CBI probe in the matter.
“Unless an inquiry is done, we won’t be satisfied. People think this could be a conspiracy. Although, I am not a policeman to decide whether it was an accident and to inquire on this matter is the job of police, I would just like to add that Mundeji used to travel in a high security vehicle with guards, how come he was in a normal car?” asked Wagh.
“He used move all across the nation. He used to travel in comfortable car with safety equipments. The Indica came and hit on Gopinath Munde’s side and not otherwise. The car was overtaken from the left side,” he said.
“I cannot say anything for sure, but, I think, this might be a conspiracy and an inquiry should be done; the truth should come out to people. I demand a CBI enquiry,” he added.
Earlier today, BJP vice president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has said that the minister’s body would be placed at BJP headquarters today for party leaders to pay last respects.
His last rites will be performed in Beed village in Parle district of Maharashtra tomorrow.
Munde tragically passed away today morning after meeting with an accident while he was enroute to Delhi’s IGI Airport. (ANI)
