Pune, June 20: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers on Saturday staged a protest demanding the arrest of former Maharashtra minister Chhagan Bhujbal.
According to reports, the protestors shouted slogans denouncing senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and carried placards with messages demanding his arrest.
AAP convenor Abhijith More reportedly said: “The investigation against Bhujbal started after AAP filed a PIL in the court. Anti-Corruption Bureu has raided his properties. We demand that he should be arrested. Action should be taken against even other leaders of NCP, who are corrupt.”
Bhujbal is being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in two cases of money laundering. Series of raids were conducted at the properties owned by Bhujbal and his family across Maharashtra.
Investigating Agencies are also looking into alleged corruption in the award of contracts during his tenure as Maharashtra’s PWD minister.
