BJP targets Maha govt, seeks resignations

Mumbai: The Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party in Maharashtra welcomed the Supreme Court ruling in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case allowing the CBI to probe the matter; with several leaders targeting the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi government, while eminent criminal lawyer Ujjwal Nikam even terming it as “a historical ruling”.

Leader of Opposition and former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said “justice could now be expected to be done to the late actor and his fans”.

“A decision that boosts faith in the judiciary system. Maharashtra government now needs to introspect on the way they handled this case. I am confident that the CBI will start its probe soon,” said Fadnavis.

In a stringent attack, state BJP Vice-President Kirit Somaiya said: “Ab to Thackeray Sarkar ki Dadagiri khatam hogi” (Now, the strong-arm tactics of the Thackeray government will end).

On the other hand, senior Shiv Sena leader and Urban Development Minister Eknath Shinde condemned the manner in which allegations were leveled against the Maharashtra government in the Sushant case, but said he would comment only after studying the Supreme Court ruling.
