Nawab Malik being troubled as he spoke against ‘misuse’ of central agencies: Pawar

MUMBAI: Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik is being troubled because he spoke against the Union government and “misuse” of central probe agencies, NCP chief Sharad Pawar claimed here on Wednesday.
Speaking to reporters in the wake of Malik’s questioning by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case, Pawar said the NCP had anticipated such an action against party leader Malik since he “speaks openly”.
Malik’s office in a Twitter post on Wednesday said the ED officials came to minister’s residence here in the morning and accompanied him in his vehicle to the probe agency’s office.
The minister’s office also said he “won’t be afraid and won’t bow down”.
To a question on whether the action against Malik was being taken as he speaks against the Centre or the BJP, Pawar said, “Which case have they dug up? It is simple.
They take the name of Dawood, especially if there is a Muslim activist (against whom a case is dug up)”There is no relation (between the activist concerned and underworld), but it is done,” Pawar recalled that he too was “targeted similarly” in the early 90s when he was the chief minister of Maharashtra and an atmosphere was created against him.
