Will File Rs 100 Cr Defamation Suit Against Kirit Somaiya: Maharashtra Minister

Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and Maharashtra Rural Development Minister Hassan Mushrif on Monday said he will file a Rs 100-crore defamation case against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kirit Somaiya.

Briefing media persons, Mushrif said, “The allegations levelled by Kirit Somaiya are part of a larger conspiracy by BJP and Chandrakant Patil is the mastermind. I have been very vocal. And on Parambir Singh’s issue. That is why I am being framed by BJP through Kirit Somaiya to stop me.”

“All allegations against me and my family are false and baseless. I am going to file Rs 100 crore defamation suit against Kirit Somaiya. Kirit Somaiya should apologise to me. I will file an FIR against Chandrakant Patil for a Rs 150-core hybrid annuity scam done during the BJP government,” he added. Also Read: ‘Will Move HC Against Maharashtra Govt’: Kirit Somaiya After Detention

BJP leader Kirit Somaiya last week alleged that Mushrif and his family members are involved in money laundering and have a stake in shell companies.

Notably, Somaiya was supposed to visit properties in Kolhapur owned by Maharashtra minister Hassan Mushrif, which he claims has led to corruption. However, he was detained at Karad railway station on his way to Kolhapur.

Earlier, Somaiya had levelled allegations of money laundering against Maharashtra Cabinet Ministers Chhagan Bhujbal and Anil Parab.
