“Param Bir Singh has alleged in his letter that the Home Minister had asked him to collect Rs 100 crore every month from pubs and bars. However, the question is why such a target will be given when most pubs and bars have been closed for the last year and a half.
“Param Bir Singh should have had a little patience. Is Param Bir Singh being used to trouble Maharashtra government? The storm that has arisen because of API Sachin Waze. But who gave Waze unlimited power in the first place? Wedge did a lot of mischief. Had it been stopped in earlier stages, the reputation of the Mumbai Police could have been saved. Despite performing well in some cases, his reputation was tarnished by the Waze case.

In order to deal with Param Bir’s investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput case and Kangana Ranaut’s quarrel with the state government, the Shiv Sena said that the transfer of the letter by the chief minister was not in line with his stature.
Singh said, ‘The state government has taken action against Singh, seeing that his emotional displeasure is understandable.

Raut further said that the state government is also ready to investigate the allegations leveled against Deshmukh.
The Home Minister (Deshmukh) said that the contents of the ‘letter bomb’ should be investigated. The Chief Minister should investigate them. The NCP chief also said that it should be investigated.

He wanted the BJP not to try to impose President’s rule in the state. “If someone is trying to impose President’s rule in Maharashtra by misusing central agencies, I am warning them, you will burn yourself in that fire,” he told ANI.
Speaking to ANI, Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik said that Singh’s letter raised many questions, but there was no question of Deshmukh’s resignation.
“Param Bir Singh’s letter raises questions. It was written after his transfer. The investigation (against Home Minister Anil Deshmukh) will take place. The resignation is sought on the basis of just one letter, so it will not happen. The party will call only after investigation.
