Shiv Sena MP Raut hits back at Rane's demand for Prez rule in Maharashtra

Mumbai/UNI: A day after BJP MP Narayan Rane urged state Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to impose the President's rule in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Tuesday hit back at his demand and countered that Gujarat's performance in handling the COVID-19 crisis is "worse", hence it deserves to be put under the central rule first.

Without naming any party, Raut noted that the Opposition should get "quarantined", and their efforts to destabilise the Maharashtra government could boomerang.

However, senior BJP leader and former minister Sudhir Mungantiwar made it clear that though the COVID-19 situation in Maharashtra is "grim", it does not qualify for the President's rule.
