Will go to ED office on Sept 27: Sharad Pawar after being named in money laundering case


Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday said he will not ‘bow down before Delhi’ and will go the Enforcement Directorate on 27 September.

His remark came a day after the investigation agency named him and his nephew in a money laundering case.

“I will myself go to Enforcement Directorate on 27 September to give all information what I have with me about this case (a money laundering case),” he said.

The NCP chief has been named in a complaint regarding a Rs. 25,000-crore scam involving the sanction of loans by the Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank (MSCB). However, he is not listed as an accused in the case. His nephew Ajit Pawar has also been named.

Earlier in the day, the 78-year-old leader said that he would be pleased to go to jail as he had never experienced it.

“A case has been registered. I have no problem if I have to go to jail. I’ll be pleased as I’ve never had this experience. If someone plans to send me to jail, I welcome it,” he said.

This comes less than a month ahead of the October 21 Assembly elections in Maharashtra.
