Responding to the NCP’s leader Nawab Malik allegations on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) regarding the cruise party case, BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday said that Malik is trying to change the narrative at someone’s behest by bringing in the party’s name.
Earlier on Wednesday, Maharashtra Cabinet Minister and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Nawab Malik alleged that Narcotics Control Bureau raid onboard a Mumbai cruise was “forgery,” and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has misused the central agency to frame Aryan Khan.
“The primary question is not as to who was there; if they were affiliated with BJP or not…(Maharashtra Minister) Nawab Malik is trying to change the narrative at someone’s behest by bringing in BJP’s name,” Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Fadnavis told ANI.
“The truth would come out soon,” added Fadnavis.
