In the context of the Rajya Sabha elections, the political atmosphere in the state appears to be heating up. This time, once again, the ruling Mahavikasaghadi and BJP leaders are making strong accusations. BJP Union Trade Minister Piyush Goyal, former Agriculture Minister Dr. Anil Bonde and former Kolhapur MP Dhananjay Mahadik have been declared candidates. Also, opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis, while pointing to the Mahavikas front, said that if one of the three candidates drops out, there will be no horse market. Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has responded to Fadnavis.
Speaking to the media, Sanjay Raut said: “Democracy is what we call parliamentary democracy. So in this way, if someone wants to fight elections, they can do it, they must take into account that no one should try to sell horses. As well as your attention is from the Centre, so is your attention from Maharashtra, our Home Department and the Chief Minister. If there is an election, welcome, if not, double welcome.”
Piyush Goyal has been in Delhi for a long time, so…
Also, “Is this an election to answer? We’ll see. Piyush Goyal is the representative of Maharashtra. They should take care of Maharashtra. There is no tradition of treason in Maharashtra. People in this state know who started him in Maharashtra in 2014 and 2019. Most of Piyush Goyal has been in Delhi for a long time, so he doesn’t know much about the current situation.” Still, Sanjay Raut spoke this time.
At the same time, “in a parliamentary democracy, this is how candidacy applications are presented. If they think they have the numbers, they’re right. We think, we are going to win. We have all the votes necessary to win the Mahavikas front. All the calculation is done, but in this election, if anyone understands that the ED, CBI and income tax departments can also vote, I don’t know. But all the MLAs here, whether they are independents or minor parties, are with us, we have all the strength.” Still, this time Sanjay Raut said.
What did Devendra Fadnavis say? –
“We don’t want to trade horses. Our three candidates will be elected. They must decide. If they were to withdraw one of the three candidates, there would be no horse market. Even if they retain the candidate, we will not sell any horses. Our three candidates are from Maharashtra. Some people are going to vote for us in good conscience. Those sitting in Delhi are always working with Maharashtra in a spirit of revenge. The statement made by Piyush Goyal has been heard by all our MLAs and the people of the state.”
“If they withdraw a candidate”; Devendra Fadnavis’s reaction to the horse market in the Rajya Sabha elections
BJP has submitted three nomination papers. We are happy that Union Minister Piyush Goyal has been re-elected to the Maharashtra Rajya Sabha. In addition, Anil Bonde has an agricultural studio. Dhananjay Mahadik has a lot of work to do in the field of cooperation. We have filled the applications of these three candidates. I am sure that our three candidates will be chosen.” That is also what Devendra Fadnavis said.
