Responding to supplementary demands in the Assembly for the second day in the winter session of the State Legislature on Tuesday, Chief Minister Thackeray attacked the opposition BJP. He said that MLA Sarnaik has got protection from the Supreme Court, then his son is being summoned by the ED. If he had a grandson, ED officials would have called him for questioning as well.
Earlier, Leader of the Opposition Devendra Fadnavis lashed out at the government in a discussion on the motion for breach of privilege in the Assembly. He said that there should not be arrogance of power in your mind. If someone is doing wrong then action should be taken against him as per law. We do not agree with the views of Arnab Goswami and Kangana Ranaut.
Referring to the reopening of the 2018 case of suicide against Goswami, he said, “There are laws to punish him if Arnab Goswami has done anything wrong.” But a closed case was opened against him. The Supreme Court has ruled that there is no case of abetment to suicide.
Shiv Sena minister Anil Parab intervened and said that the Supreme Court order is limited to Goswami’s bail application and the (Bombay) High Court has not dismissed the case against the television journalist. Parab said that the state government would review the Supreme Court’s comment. Fadnavis said, there should not be arrogance of power in your mind.
Arnab had put camera behind me in America: Fadnavis
Former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis revealed in the Assembly on Tuesday that Arnab Goswami, Editor-in-Chief of Republic India, had also trialled the media against me three times. During the meeting with investors in America, I also had a camera on my back. I was doing my work and the camera was doing its work.
He said, but I neither put him in jail nor brought a proposal for breach of privilege. We responded to them according to the law. Fadnavis said that I do not support what actress Kangna tweeted. But his house cannot be broken in return because it is a state of law. Pakistan is not.
