In the winter session of the state legislature on Tuesday, while replying to the second day’s supplementary demands in the Assembly, Chief Minister Thackeray attacked the opposition BJP. He said MLA Sarnaik has received protection from the Supreme Court, after which his son has been summoned by the ED. If he had a grandson, he would have been summoned for questioning by ED officials.
Earlier, Leader of the Opposition Devendra Fadnavis slammed the government in a debate in the Assembly on a proposal to infringe on privileges. He said that you should not be proud of power in your mind. If someone makes a mistake, action should be taken against him according to the law. We do not agree with the views of Arnab Goswami and Kangana Ranaut.
Regarding the reopening of the 2018 case of suicide against Goswami, he said, “If Arnab Goswami has done anything wrong, there are laws to punish him.” But a closed case was opened against him. The Supreme Court has ruled that types of suicide do not occur.
Shiv Sena minister Anil Parab intervened, saying the Supreme Court order was limited to Goswami’s bail application and the (Mumbai) High Court had not dismissed the case against the journalists on Doordarshan. Parab said the state government would review the Supreme Court’s comment. Fadnavis said, you should not be proud of power.
Arnab had a camera behind me in America: Fadnavis
Former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday revealed in the Assembly that Arnab Goswami, the editor-in-chief of Republic of India, had also sued me three times in the media. I also had a camera on my back during my meetings with investors in the US. I was doing my job and the camera was doing its job.
He said, but I did not imprison him or propose to violate the privilege. We responded to them according to the law. “I do not support actress Kangana’s tweet,” Fadnavis said. But his house cannot be destroyed in return because it is the rule of law. Not Pakistan.
