Pune : The senior BJP leader, Chitra Wagh once again targeted the Maharashtra minister Sanjay Rathod and alleged that the Uddhav Thackeray government is shielding minister Rathod, whose name has been linked to the death of the TikTok actress, Pooja Chavan at Pune on February 8.
Pooja died after falling from a building in the Hadapsar area of Pune on February 8. The state BJP vice president Wagh visited the incident spot on Thursday and also met the Pune Police Commissioner Amitabh Gupta over the issue.
Later talking to media persons, Wagh alleged that the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi partners are united in shielding Rathod. “We don’t expect anything from ministers, but at least Chief Minister Udhhav Thackeray should take a cognizance on the issue.”
Wagh pointed out that after the woman’s death, some audio clips of her purported conservation with two persons went viral. One of them was the minister Rathod. “We believe one of the voices heard in the audio clips is one Rathod,” claims the BJP leader.
Earlier, the minister Rathod dismissed the allegations against him and claimed: “dirty politics” was being played following the woman’s death.
Meanwhile, the state youth wing of BJP lodged a complaint with the Pune police against Rathod and insisted an action against him on the suicide case.
