Shatrughan Sinha has backed Sharad Pawar and questioned the ED (Enforcement Directorate) in a series of tweets about the FIR against the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar. In his tweets, the actor turned politician has questioned the PM if he is aware of the development. He also questioned the timing of the FIR.
Honourable Prime Minister Sir... News (rather shocking) has just come in that ED has now filed an FIR against a most admired, seasoned and respected leader @PawarSpeaks Sharad Pawar. And that too barely a month ahead of the assembly elections in Maharashtra. Are you aware Sir?— Shatrughan Sinha (@ShatruganSinha) September 25, 2019
In his tweets, Shatrughan also alleged that the ED is giving credence to the belief that investigative agencies are being sent after esteemed leaders of the country. He also alleged that the entire case was a build-up to tarnish the image of a veteran leader like Sharad Pawar, whom he called the tallest Maratha leader.
With all due respect,(if I may ask so) is this a ploy, game or tactic to destroy the tallest Maratha leader, #Jantaraja, and a great starlwart?— Shatrughan Sinha (@ShatruganSinha) September 25, 2019
Hope, wish and pray that this doesn’t politically misfire or backfire in terms of sympathy...
Jai Maratha, Jai Maharashtra, Jai Hind!
A few days ago, Shatrughan Sinha had praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and congratulated him on the sidelines of the ‘Howdy Modi’ grand event that took place on Sunday. He also said that the event was a testimony of the bond between the United States President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
#HowdyModi in Houston!— Shatrughan Sinha (@ShatruganSinha) September 23, 2019
What a great start to a bright Indo-American friendship!
The event was testimony to a newly forged bond with a really strong friendship b/w two great leaders and nations of the world.
It was a mutual admiration society as far as the Indian diaspora
The Enforcement Directorate filed a case against the NCP leader Sharad Pawar in a Rs 5,000 crore, Maharashtra Co-operative bank scam case. The complaint alleges that banking laws and Reserve Bank of India (RBI) guidelines were violated when loans were distributed to sugar factories and spinning mills in Maharashtra that had weak financial profiles.
Following the case, Sharad Pawar addressed a press conference and said he will visit the ED on September 27 in connection to the case. “I will go to the Enforcement Directorate on September 27 at 2 pm and make myself available to the agency for whatever investigation they want to conduct.” He also said that due to the upcoming Maharashtra Assembly polls he will be visiting various districts of the state and this should not be taken as unavailability by the agency.
