With the Rajya Sabha elections, politics in the state is heating up. It has become clear that the Rajya Sabha elections will take place after talks between the ruling Mahavikas Aghadi and the opposition BJP broke down. In this context, forces on both sides are likely to mobilize for sixth place. Both sides are making accusations and counterclaims on this issue. Speaking to the media today, Shiv Sena MP and spokesperson Sanjay Raut has strongly advised the BJP on this issue. He also alleged that the BJP was pressuring the independent MLAs for the sixth seat.
ED, pressure through CBI?
Sanjay Raut said that the BJP was putting pressure on independent MLAs whose votes would matter for the Rajya Sabha’s sixth seat through ED-CBI. “Mahavikas Aghadi is in power in the state. Therefore, we have strongly contested the elections. The issue is sixth place. For this, the BJP relies on independents or other parties. That is, it will attract them, it will pressure them. Those who are being pressured are our friends. They are also telling us this. The ED has a role to play in weeding out some old cases and harassing them,” Raut said.

If the elections are held in this way in Maharashtra, then the people of the state are watching. Mahavikas Aghadi will win all four seats. BJP should not waste their money. Participate in a social work. The Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is a strong leader. We have been fighting elections for 50 years. We have the most experience in this type of election. But we don’t have ED, CBI on our hands. But keep in mind we have a lot of other things on our hands. hands,” he said.
