Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh wrote a letter to Thackeray alleging that Deshmukh acted with “malice” and asked suspended Assistant Police Inspector Sachin Vej to collect Rs 100 crore every month.
Subsequently, a delegation of BJP leaders led by former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis met the Governor on Wednesday, urging Thackeray to take a report on the issue related to governance and corruption.
Fadnavis said that while backing the government of the Grand Alliance, he said that he had lost the moral ground to remain in power.
BJP leader Sudhir Mungantiwar said, “We requested the Governor to seek a report from the Chief Minister on various issues related to governance and COVID-19 in the state. We have also requested him to intervene in corruption cases.”
Fadnavis had on Tuesday handed over the alleged evidence to the Union Home Secretary about the alleged transfer posting racket of Maharashtra Police IPS and non-IPS officers.
He had sought time from the Union Home Secretary to meet him and hand over 6.3 GB of data for call recordings and documents related to the alleged transfer posting racket of alleged IPS and non-IPS officers of Maharashtra Police.
Earlier, he had demanded Deshmukh’s resignation over the former Mumbai police commissioner of Mumbai Singh against the country’s home minister.
Singh on Saturday wrote a letter to Thackeray, alleging that Deshmukh acted with “maliciousness” and asked suspended Assistant Police Inspector Sachin Vej to collect Rs 100 crore every month.
