A fresh war of words erupted between the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) and opposition Bharatiya Janata Party with both sides threatening each other to "take action", here on Friday.

The latest round of verbal firings came in the wake of BJP state vice-president Kirit Somaiya's demands to probe around 21 alleged land deals between Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray's family and certain other Shiv Sena leaders and the late architect Anvay M. Naik.

Losing his cool, Shiv Sena MP warned Somaiya to order investigations by any of the agencies it controls like the ED and CBI, "or even go to CIA, FBI, KGB, the United Nations, before making such baseless allegations".

Terming the BJP leader's charges as 'frivolous,' Raut said: "What is he talking about... Which 21 properties, show me even five. There was one transaction which was absolutely legal."

Referring to BJP as "Sethji's party" with Somaiya as its "Vyapari Pravakta", Raut said he talks as per the wishes of his bosses sitting in Delhi.

On the demands for probe by Somaiya, a visibly irritated Raut shot back: "Why only the ED...let there be a probe by CBI also... And why stop with ED and CBI only. Let them go to Interpol, CIA, FBI, KGB and the United Nations."
