Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has alleged that the government was using the Enforcement Directorate to harass the Opposition. In a letter to Rajya Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, he also alleged that he had been “approached by certain people” for “assistance in toppling the Maharashtra government so that a midterm election could be held”. He said he was being “intimidated” for his refusal to take part in such an act so that he would not be able to speak freely in Rajya Sabha.
The Opposition on Tuesday walked out of Rajya Sabha after PM Narendra Modi attacked former Prime Ministers Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi. Reacting to the PM’s speech, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi again raised the ‘two Indias’ issue. The Karnataka Hijab Row was raised in Lok Sabha.
