– Displeasure with the letter is only an appearance*
On the occasion of the winter session, MLA Nawab Malik has been sitting on the bench of the ruling party. Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has written a letter to Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar expressing his displeasure over the entry of Malik into the NCP. But the reality behind this is different and after Malik expressed his desire to join the Ajit Pawar group of NCP, he was included only with the consent of Fadnavis himself. Due to this, it will not be appropriate to take Malik, who is accused of being a traitor, in the Mahayuti (grand alliance), it has come to light that the letter made by Fadnavis is a mere show.*
Due to Malik’s entry in Nagpur, the first day of the convention witnessed a lot of excitement. How can a ‘self-claimed’ party with different allies once called traitors?
How can the pedantic and self-claimed party with difference BJP, allies once called traitors? Is it ok as it sits on your side or is your washing machine maxed out? Fadnavis was surrounded by the opposition asking this question. As a result of this criticism, Fadnavis immediately wrote a letter to Ajit Pawar and concluded that it would not be right to make Malik a part of the Mahayuti. But this letter appears to be a part of softening the edge of the opposition’s criticism.
This letter has given Ajit Pawar’s NCP a big shock. There was no need for Fadnavis to throw stones at the Mahayuti (grand alliance) by writing a public letter either. And if Malik’s participation had been compromised, a solution could have been found sitting on it, the NCP is expressing displeasure. But according to party sources, Malik’s entry into the Ajit Pawar group was with the consent of Fadnavis. If they had objected to it earlier, we would not have had time to put them on the bench of the rulers. Due to this claim of NCP, Fadnavis has fallen into disrepute.
While Malik was in jail, he wrote a letter to his daughter Nilofar Malik Khan expressing his desire to join the Ajitdada faction of the Nationalist Congress Party. This letter was given in the name of Sunil Tatkare, the regional president of this group. After discussion in the party on this letter, it was decided to include Malik in NCP. But Devendra Fadnavis was asked the same. After he agreed, Malik’s entry was confirmed. Interestingly, after that Malik’s way out of jail is understood to be easier.
The Sprouts’ Special Investigation Team has received information that his bail was granted due to illness and there was little opposition from the ED.
Fadnavis had raised a furore by alleging that Malik had financial dealings with notorious gangster Dawood Ibrahim. After this, it was impossible for Malik, who was caught in the ED’s net, to get bail. Malik’s family, who was already ill, was worried as his condition deteriorated in prison. However, suddenly with the letter sent by Malik to the NCP, the sources moved fast. But Fadnavis became the panchayat as Malik directly sat on the ruling bench in the session. Realizing that his and BJP’s image is tarnished in the public mind due to all this, he has written a letter to Ajit Dada and has taken the stand that it is not me.
*Why does Praful Patel work for BJP?*
The BJP leaders had alleged that senior NCP leader Praful Patel had taken property from Iqbal Chili, the accomplice of Mumbai bomb case accused Dawood Ibrahim. ED’s Sasemira Patel was followed. Despite this, is Praful Patel dear to BJP? Such a question is being raised on this occasion. Sources have also pointed out that because of Patel, there is no obstacle in the Grand Alliance, so what happens because of Malik?
