MNS members at Kotwali Police Station in Nagpur
Members of the Nagpur unit of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), on directions from General Secretary Hemant Gadkari, went to Kotwali Police station on Saturday to file a ‘missing complaint’ to ‘find’ Guardian Minister Dr Nitin Raut. It was MNS’ way of protesting against Raut, who, according to the MNS, is in Tamil Nadu for Assembly Elections despite the COVID-19 crisis worsening in Nagpur day by day.
Speaking to Nation Next, Gadkari said: “Nagpur district has already witnessed more than 4,000 cases in a day and a lot of cases are being recorded on a regular basis. The district is also witnessing around 35 deaths each day. There is an acute bed shortage and it has come to light that patients are sharing beds at government hospitals. At a time when COVID-19 crisis is at its worst in Nagpur, the Guardian Minister of Nagpur is in Tamil Nadu for Assembly Elections. Who knows Raut in Tamil Nadu? He is the guardian of the district and that means people here are his family. What kind of a guardian leaves his family members when they are not well?”
