“Khadse has said that if he opens the mouth, country will shake… I think he must open his mouth, the country will not shake, there will be problems within the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP),” NCP leader Nawab Malik told ANI.
“Have you (Khadse) talked to Dawood whether he gave you some information about your party members? You must reveal the facts that you know,” he added.The comments from the NCP came after Khadse stirred a row, saying the whole country would “shake” if he opened his mouth.
Khadse, while addressing a group of supporters in his home constituency in Jalgaon said, “Though I have resigned in the wake of allegations against me, if I opened my mouth, the entire country will shake.”
Khadse, who was holding several key portfolios, including Revenue, in the state cabinet, resigned earlier this month over a series of allegations including irregularities in a land deal and allegedly receiving calls on his mobile from a landline number of fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan.
