This was told by Anil Deshmukh himself. He had also asked me for 2 crore rupees to convince Pawar saheb. It was not possible for me to pay such a huge amount.

On this, I told Home Minister Anil Deshmukh that the city has only 200 bars, not 1650 times.

Anil Parab along with Deshmukh on CBI radar
After this disclosure by Sachin Vazh, Transport Minister Anil Parab’s difficulties may increase with former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. The BJP has again got a chance to surround the Maharashtra government. This statement of Vazhe confirms the allegation of former Mumbai commissioner Parambir Singh’s recovery of Rs 100 crore against Deshmukh.
The CBI team has reached Mumbai to investigate the matter, it is believed that in a few hours it can interrogate Sachin Waze. After the revelations of Vaje, now minister Anil Parab has also come on the radar of CBI.
Parab said – Swear on the daughters, the allegations against me are false.
Minister Anil Parab came in front of the media after he accused me and said that I swear by my two daughters, I swear by Balasaheb, all the allegations against me are false. This is an attempt to discredit me. BJP leaders had been shouting for two-three days. He was referring to another victim. He was already aware of this matter. The BJP already knew that Sachin was going to give me a letter today, so he was talking about ‘take the third wicket’. I have no acquaintance with the municipal contractor. So I am ready to face any inquiry today.
Parab said why did Sachin Vaz not take my name first? He came once and wrote a letter. This proves that he wants to discredit the government. I am willing to undergo any investigation and narco test in this matter.
