New Delhi: Mumbai cruise drug case case has now turned to counterfeit note. By holding a press conference today, NCP leader Nawab Malik has made many serious allegations against former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. He said that Devendra Fadnavis was doing business of counterfeit notes in Maharashtra during his tenure as CM. Under his patronage, this business was going on till Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Fadnavis shielded fake note racket: Malik
Malik alleged that after demonetisation on November 8, 2016, counterfeit notes were caught at many places in the country, but not a single case was reported in Maharashtra for a whole year. On October 8, 2017, in a raid in Maharashtra, over 14 crore 56 lakh counterfeit notes were caught.3
Devendra Fadnavis worked to cover up that matter. The matter was suppressed by saying that the raid was only eight lakh 80 thousand. A case was registered and bail was granted within a few days. The matter was not referred to the NIA. Because, those who were running the counterfeit currency racket, they had the protection of the then government.
Why Fadnavis is seen with Dawood's close friends
The NCP leader alleged that Fadnavis, while being the CM, provided political posts only to those having connections with the underworld. He made a person named Munna Yadav the chairman of the construction board. While, he was a mafia, there were many cases of murder registered against him. It is alleged that CM Fadnavis was doing the work of extortion money through Riyaz Bhati, a close aide of Dawood. The recovery was done by registering a case against the people. The landowners were caught and brought and all the lands were written in their names. During his tenure, people used to get calls from goons from abroad.
Malik said that Riyaz Bhati, a close aide of Dawood Ibrahim, was caught with two passports. A man who is caught with two passports gets bail within two days. He used to appear in BJP programs. CM used to look at Devendra Fadnavis's dinner table. Not only this, Riyaz Bhati had reached the Prime Minister's program only with the blessings of Fadnavis.
