ED Raid: After West Bengal, ED has become active in Maharashtra, here the team of ED has reached the house of Shiv Sena leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut. Sanjay Raut is being questioned. It has been told that this action is being taken in the Patra Chawl case.
Meanwhile, some tweets have been made by Sanjay Raut, in which he mentioned the action being taken against himself. Sanjay Raut has alleged that false action is being taken against him by presenting false evidence.
“I have nothing to do with any scam. I am saying this by taking the oath of Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray. Balasaheb taught us to fight. I will continue to fight for Shiv Sena,” he tweeted in Marathi this morning. “False action. False evidence. I will not leave Shiv Sena. Even if I die, I will not surrender. Jai Maharashtra,” he added.
He had said that even if I am arrested, the party will not break. He had said that some people are living in illusion and efforts are being made to break the party.
BJP MLA Ram Kadam questioned why the Sena leader missed the summons. “Why is he scared of Enforcement Directorate if he is innocent? He has all the time for press conferences but no time to visit the probe agency’s office for questioning,” he said.
What is chawl land scam?
The whole matter started in the year 2007, when Ashish Construction (which is the sister company of HDIL) was given the task of developing Patra Chawl. The company had to make 672 flats to the people living there and give about 3000 flats to MHADA. This entire land was of 47 acres.
It is alleged that Guru Ashish Construction did not do any development there nor gave the flat to MHADA. Rather they sold the entire land and the FSI 8 builder for Rs 1,034 crore. In this case, the ED arrested Praveen Raut, close to Sanjay Raut. After which the name of Sanjay Raut also came up in this case.
