Shiv Sena responds to Amruta Fadnavis' claim on Axis Bank
Mumbai/UNI: Shiv Sena spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi on Sunday responded to former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' wife Amruta Fadnavis' claim that the Uddhav Thackeray-led government was trying to target her and the former Chief Minister by shifting the salaried accounts of its employees from the Axis Bank to a nationalised bank.
Chaturvedi said that if Ms Fadnavis is calling the government's move as vendetta, it implies that she agrees that Devendra Fadnavis favoured moving accounts to the Axis Bank, as she was employed there.
Amruta happens to be the vice president and corporate head (west India) at the Axis Bank.
Surprised that she is calling it vendetta because if it were,she agrees that the fmr CM favoured moving accounts to Axis Bank as she was employed there— Priyanka Chaturvedi (@priyankac19) December 29, 2019
If decision to move accounts was business as usual with zilch involvement of her&fmr CM then where is the question of targeting? https://t.co/eRCOpqMKdW
In a series of tweets, the Sena spokesperson posted, "Surprised that she is calling it vendetta because if it were, she agrees that the CM favoured moving accounts to Axis Bank as she was employed there. If decision to move accounts was business as usual with zilch involvement of her & former CM then where is the question of targeting?"
In fact, after reading the interview I urge the Maharashtra government to investigate how moving accounts to Axis bank isn’t a clear case of conflict of interest.— Priyanka Chaturvedi (@priyankac19) December 29, 2019
Also investigate whether any/ how much CSR was given to the BJP schemes by Axis Bank after moving the accounts? https://t.co/1Ox2PJFvVF
The ideologically different Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress recently came together a month ago to form the government in Maharashtra after Sena fell out with its poll ally BJP over its demand for rotational chief ministership.
