… So I had to sign Nilaja; Bhujbal remained silent on Balasaheb’s arrest

The Assembly election campaign has gained momentum. Accusations are rife in the political arena, with the ruling and opposition parties trying their best to win the election. On the one hand, while campaigning, NCP leader Ajit Pawar lamented that it was NCP’s fault for arresting Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray. The then Home Minister Chhagan Bhujbal has remained silent on this issue.

“Arresting Shiv Sena chief Baulasaheb Thackeray was a mistake of NCP. This action was taken only on the pretext of some seniors, ”said former Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar in an interview to a private news channel. “When we asked the person concerned about Balasaheb’s arrest why he was doing this, he said, ‘We are the head of this department. We will make the decision we think is right. ” That is what Ajit Pawar had said avoiding mentioning the name of the leader. However, Chhagan Bhujbal was the Home Minister when Balasaheb was arrested.

After this statement of Ajit Pawar, the political discussion came to a head. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had also castigated NCP president Sharad Pawar. If Ajit Pawar has the courage, it should be mentioned that it was Chhagan Bhujbal’s fault. It is the fault of the department head, they say. But it cannot be forgotten that Sharad Pawar was the father of those who made mistakes at that time, ”Thackeray had said.

Former state Home Minister and NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal has given an explanation on the political controversy that started with the arrest of Balasaheb. Speaking in an interview, Chhagan Bhujbal said, “When we started the campaign in 1999, our promise was to take appropriate action against those who were found guilty by the Shrikrishna Commission. Then came the coalition government in 1995. At that time, the cases against Balasaheb Thackeray and Shiv Sainiks were settled. But, the file of Shrikrishna Commission was the same. Later, when that file came before me, I was the Home Minister. So I was in a state of well-being. So I had to sign Nilaja. But this issue is over now, ”said Bhujbal.
