Day after spat on NIA taking over Elgar Parishad case Sharad Pawar praises CM
| Sunday | 16th February, 2020
On Friday, Pawar had told reporters in Kolhapur that it was not right on part of the Centre to hand over the Elgar Parishad case probe to the NIA from Pune police.
"Blessings of the people and guidance of Sharad Pawar saheb is with me while I am functioning as CM," Thackeray said.
The Elgar case relates to alleged inflammatory speeches delivered at the Elgar Parishad conclave, held at Shaniwarwada in Pune on December 31, 2017, which the police claimed, triggered violence near the Koregaon-Bhima war memorial in the district the next day.
There seems to be some murmurs in the state BJP at a time when my government is functioning smoothly.
Earlier in the day, Pawar and Thackeray came together for a function in Jalgaon to give out agricultural awards named after Appasaheb Pawar, the NCP chief's elder brother.
