Reacting to the resignation of Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, the BJP said the NCP leader Sharad Pawar must have understood the implications of giving a clean chit to Deshmukh who tendered his resignation to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on April 05. "Sharad Pawar Ji is a senior political leader of the country. He ought to have understood the implications of giving a complete clean chit to Anil Deshmukh," said Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad while also pressing for a fair investigation. Anil Deshmukh is facing allegations of corruption levelled by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh.
NCP chief Sharad Pawar underwent an emergency endoscopy for the removal of a stone from his bile duct and is now doing fine, Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said. Pawar, 80, was admitted to the Breach Candy Hospital on Tuesday after he experienced abdominal pain. The NCP chief is likely to remain in the hospital for the next three to four days.

Politicians from across the spectrum had conveyed their best wishes to the NCP chief wishing him a speedy recovery. Watch the full video for all the details.

With growing number of COVID-19 cases, Maharashtra cabinet minister Nawab Malik said that the healthcare system is likely to face more pressure in the coming days. He said, "With rising COVID-19 cases despite the strict protocols, healthcare system is likely to face more pressure in the coming days. Chief Minister will hold a meeting with task force tomorrow, after which, a further decision will be taken."
Soon after Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh submitted his resignation to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, state minister and NCP leader Nawab Malik informed that Anil Deshmukh no more wanted to remain in his post. "After the high court order, Home Minister Anil Deshmukh met Pawar Ji and party leaders and said he doesn't want to remain in the post because the inquiry will be there. He went to tender his resignation to the CM. Party has requested to the CM to accept his resignation," said Nawab Malik. Anil Deshmukh's resignation comes amid corruption allegations by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh. In his resignation letter to Maharashtra CM, Home Minister said he doesn't find it morally correct to continue as the home minister after Bombay High Court's order.
Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Nawab Malik talked about upcoming IPL matches to be conducted in Maharashtra. He said that permission to conduct matches is granted with restrictions but audience will not be allowed to sit in the stadium. Speaking to ANI, Malik said, "IPL permission has been granted, matches to be played with restrictions. People are not allowed to sit in the stadium, only relays can be done. Players and others involved in IPL will be required to isolate themselves at the same place." "The BCCI has demanded that all players should be vaccinated, but as per ICMR guidelines, age limit is 45 years. Until and unless it issues new guidelines, we can't vaccinate. As soon as we get permission, more people will be vaccinated," he added.
Soon after the Bombay HC directed the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry within 15 days into the corruption allegations against Anil Deshmukh. Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh resigned on Monday hours. Anil Deshmukh’s resignation from the post of Maharashtra home minister has triggered a fresh wave of turmoil in the ruling Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi. However, if sources are to be believed, the NCP already has a leader lined up to replace Anil Deshmukh. Dilip Walse Patil, the current minister for labour, and excise, will most likely replace Anil Deshmukh as Maharashtra home minister.
