Aurangabad: NCP leader Dhananjay Munde on Tuesday demanded Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis’s resignation for his ‘failure’ to control the violence in Aurangabad that claimed two lives and left over 60 people injured. Munde, who is the Leader of Opposition in the state Legislative Council, also sought a judicial inquiry into the riots. He was speaking to reporters after visiting the violence-hit areas here.
“This was not a clash between two communities. It was executed for extortion by one of the corporators of Aurangabad Municipal corporation,” he claimed.
He said two months back, the intelligence had given inputs about the possible violence in the city. “However, the police failed to act on those inputs. The officers who hid the information provided by the intelligence should be suspended.
