Eknath Shinde, the chief minister of Maharashtra, has poked fun at Sanjay Raut, a Shiv Sena member of the Rajya Sabha, who was arrested. Eknath Shinde said that the siren that used to ring every morning at eight o’clock, went inside. The siren won’t be heard in the morning anymore. He claimed that the ED is performing its duties. If you are sincere, there is no need for concern. Shinde promised to fill it with anything he did. Sanjay Raut, the head of the Shiv Sena, was taken into custody by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) late on Sunday night after being questioned for more than six hours on the Patra Chawl land scam. However, Raut asserted that he is innocent and was being falsely accused. At the same time, following a medical examination, he will appear in PMLA court today.
Trying to make up false evidence to accuse me: Raut
Sanjay Raut, the head of the Shiv Sena, said that by hitting individuals, false accusations and evidence against me were being created. Shiv Sena and Maharashtra will not be weakened; this is merely done to make them weaker. Sanjay Raut will not bow down and will not leave the party either.
Raut’s brother clarified about Rs 11.50 lakh was found in the house
Rs 11.50 lakh that was discovered at the home of Sanjay Raut, who was detained by the ED, has also been the subject of a significant claim from his brother Sunil Rawat. According to Sunil, this money was set aside for the Shiv Sainiks’ trip to Ayodhya. The bundle of notes also included the name of Eknath Shinde. Raut was taken into custody by the ED yesterday, after 16 hours of interrogation in the Mumbai Patra Chawl land scam money laundering case. By bringing them to court today, the Enforcement Directorate may ask for remand. In the meantime, there are several news stories in the media about this scam, his questioning, threatening the witness, and his detention.
The Patra Chawl scam is worth Rs. 1039.79 crores
The Maharashtra Housing Development Authority (MHADA) and Guru Construction Company signed a contract in 2007 for the reconstruction of 672 people’s homes in Patra Chawl in Siddharth Nagar, Goregaon, a western suburb of Mumbai. The deal covered 47 acres of land. More than 3.5 thousand apartments were to be produced by the firm and given to MHADA as per the terms of this deal. The remaining land was then supposed to be sold to private developers. The directors of this business were Guru Ashish, Rakesh Wadhawan, Sarang Wadhawan, Praveen Raut, and Rakesh Wadhawan of DHIL. The business is accused of misleading MHADA and depositing Rs 901 crore by selling the FSI of Patra Chawl to 9 other builders. Then, a new project named Meadows was launched, and Rs 138 crore was collected under the guise of apartment reservations. However, apartments were not supplied to 672 persons. This led to the Patra Chawl scandal, which resulted in a swindle of Rs. 1039.79 crore. Following that, MHADA reported Guru Construction Company in a police report (FIR) in 2018.
