Bhima-Koregaon case: The tussle under the Uddhav Thackeray government of Maharashtra is increasing. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has taken a direct stand from the NCP amid the tussle between Congress and Shiv Sena involved in Mahavikas Aghadi. Uddhav Thackeray has submitted the Bhima-Koregaon case to the NIA, which has angered NCP supremo Sharad Pawar. In such a situation, questions are now arising whether the government of Mahavikas Aghadi will be able to complete 5 years or not?
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has handed over the investigation of the Bhima-Koregaon case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). In doing so, they overturned the decision of the Home Ministry of their government. The state's Home Minister is NCP leader Anil Deshmukh and has expressed deep displeasure over Uddhav's decision. Anil Deshmukh said on Thursday that the Chief Minister has reversed his decision in the Bhima Koregaon case.
Sharad Pawar has targeted Uddhav Thackeray
On the other hand, the Chief Secretary (Home) of the same state, Sanjay Kumar claimed that the home department of the state had no objection to handing over the Bhima Koregaon case to the NIA. Now, Sharad Pawar, the supremo who played a key role in making Mahavikas Aghadi in the state, has targeted Uddhav Thackeray over the entire matter. Pawar said the decision to hand over the investigation of the Bhima-Koregaon case to the NIA is 'unconstitutional'.
Talking to reporters in Kolhapur, Sharad Pawar said that the Central Government did not correct the case by handing over the investigation from Pune Police to NIA as law and order is a matter of the State Government. NCP chief Sharad Pawar said, "The Central Government did not correct the matter by handing over the investigation to the NIA and even more wrongly the state government supported it."
Stress continues in Congress-Shiv Sena
The issue of Savarkar had not yet cooled down that the Shiv Sena-Congress has been stymied over the Citizens Amendment Act and the National Population List (NPR). Even after nationwide protests, the Union Home Ministry has issued a notification to collect information under the NPR from May 1 to June 15. Meanwhile, Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant in Maharashtra has said that Congress is opposed to the provisions of NPR. Congress ministers will talk to the government in this regard.
On the other hand, Shiv Sena MP Anil Desai said that Uddhav Saheb has clearly said that if NPR is the same as the census, then it does not matter, because the census is done every 10 years. The NCP has not yet opened its cards on this issue. Recently, Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said during a meeting with representatives of opponents of NPR that the government was in consultation with law experts. Significantly, the Maharashtra government will also issue a notification regarding NPR soon. This has been confirmed by the Central Census Office in Mumbai.
Uddhav government's vehicle will continue?
Not only the state but also the entire country, the market of speculation has been heated over whether the Uddhav government will be able to complete its 5-year term. Political analysts believe that despite this tension, there is no threat to the Uddhav government. He said that Uddhav Thackeray is trying to show through his step that he stands on the issue of his Hindutva and aggressive nationalism. Not only this, but Uddhav also wants to show that he is the head of this government and will do whatever he wants.
This great fear is haunting Shiv Sena
According to analysts, the Shiv Sena, who tasted power by talking of a staunch Hindutva, is now afraid of losing his land. In fact, after forming a government with the Congress, Uddhav Thackeray's cousin Raj Thackeray seems to be renewed towards radical Hindutva. Raj Thackeray had recently criticized the protests against the CAA in the country and the ongoing agitation in Delhi's Shaheen Bagh. Raj Thackeray said that I do not understand why Indian Muslims are opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act. More than 1 lakh people participated in the mega-march, which was organized to demand the removal of Raj Thackeray's illegal infiltrators. Uddhav Thackeray is now under tension with this bet of Raj Thackeray and will soon go to Ayodhya to visit Ramlala.
