Days after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoned Rohit Pawar, grandnephew of NCP founder Sharad Pawar, in connection with a money laundering case, a social media poster calls for massive support as Rohit is set to report at the ED office on January 24, reported ANI. 


The poster boldly states, "I will come wherever you call me. I am the heir of a storm. I will blow you apart," accompanied by a picture of the NCP MLA.


According to the report, Rohit Pawar, a leader in the NCP-Sharad Pawar faction, has promised full cooperation with the ED. Despite concerns about potential wrongdoing, he encourages ongoing support for Sharad Pawar, citing present political circumstances.


In a message made on X (formerly Twitter), Rohit Pawar expresses his willingness to cooperate with authorities while admitting the politics of retribution and government pressure on various systems. He appeals for unity to support Sharad Pawar and anybody who values Maharashtra's self-respect and believes in the Constitution.

"After going to the office on January 24 for inquiry, I will cooperate fully with the authorities as I have cooperated earlier. But looking at the current politics of revenge, as there is a lot of pressure from the government on all the systems, under this pressure, if ED takes any wrong action against me, no one should be afraid, instead, everyone should stand united with the respected Pawar sahib and every person who preserves the self-respect of Maharashtra and believes in the Constitution," he said in a post. 

The Maharashtra State Cooperative (MSC) Bank scam concerns the alleged illegal disbursement of loans of 25,000 crores. The case, which began with four persons filing a PIL Petition in the Bombay High Court, reveals a method by which certain sugar mills defaulted on loans without proper diligence. The mills were attached and auctioned off to bank executives and politicians, the ANI report stated.

According to the report, responding to the PIL, the Bombay High Court ordered that the case be registered. The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Maharashtra government initially investigated the case. However, when EOW filed a closure report in 2020, the ED interfered by filing an intervention petition and initiating an investigation.
