Amar Singh has given the Maharashtra government a week to take action against Raj Thackeray. If not, Samajwadi Party workers would
Mumbai Police Commissioner DN Jadhav’s office.
“The government has asked us to be patient and wait for a week but after that I will lead a gherao against Jadhav. In Delhi, all Samajwadi Parliamentarians will not allow (Sharad) Pawar to do any work,’’ said Amar.
He added that Pawar, the NCP chief, was responsible for the state home department’s inaction, as his party leader RR Patil heads it.
Amar’s tough talk came after Pawar said that the Samajwadi Party and Raj were equally responsible for the skirmishes.
“Pawar is doing his best for the Indian Premier League cricket. Big names like Mukesh Ambani, Shah Rukh Khan are with him. But he has failed to tackle the issue of farmers' suicides despite being the agriculture minister,” he said.
The SP leader claimed he had received anonymous threat calls on Monday.
He also announced compensation of Rs 20 lakh for the victims of the recent violence in the Mumbai.
