NEW DELHI: The allegations made by former Mumbai Commissioner Param Bir Singh against Maharashtra Interior Minister Anil Deshmukh were echoed in Lok Sabha again on Wednesday.
The independent MP for Amaravati in Maharashtra, Navneet Rana, raised the issue during Zero Hour.
On Monday, Rana wrote to Lok Sabha Chairman Om Birla alleging that Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant had threatened her in the Parliament premises.
She sought the protection of the president, saying that after the disappearance of Bal Thackeray, Shiv Sena does not respect women.
However, Rana did not mention Sawant’s name in the House on Wednesday.
Sawant, who was present in the House, said he was ready to face action if the charges against him are proven.
He said that the Shiv Sena members followed all the rules of decency and decorum.
On Monday, Rana had spoken out against the government of Maha Vikas Aghadi over allegations made by the former Mumbai police commissioner.
BSP’s Malook Nagar demanded a CBI investigation into the allegations.
Citing a nexus between politicians and bureaucrats, AIMIM’s Imtiyaz Jaleel demanded that the government set a reflection period for high-ranking officials before joining politics after retirement.
Days after being diverted, Param Bir Singh wrote a letter to Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, claiming that the state’s interior minister had asked Sachin Waze, currently in the custody of the National Investigation Agency (NIA), to already other police officers raising Rs. 100 crore per month, including Rs 50 crore to Rs 60 crore for bars and restaurants in Mumbai.
Deshmukh has denied these allegations.
The NIA is investigating Waze’s alleged role in placing an explosives-laden SUV in front of the residence of industrialist Mukesh Ambani on February 25.
