Deshmukh was in the city on Sunday, interacting with reporters on various issues.
On being his claim that “three to four senior police officials” were working to topple the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, Deshmukh said, “The remarks were wrongly attributed to me.”
“If you see the video of my interview, it becomes clear that a certain part has been wrongly attributed to me. I only said I cannot speak about these things in public. After all, I am the head of the police department, which is my family,” said Deshmukh.
The home minister refused to explain what are the things he cannot speak in public about.
