The Sharad Pawar-led NCP Friday said Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis 'spied on' the party's rally by videographing it through police, and accused the BJP-led government of imposing 'emergency' through back door.
The NCP has been holding rallies as part of its public outreach programme called the 'Parivartan Yatra' to highlight alleged failures of the BJP-led central and state governments ahead of the 2019 general polls.
"Fadnavis instructed police to record videos of our #ParivartanYatra to keep an eye on us! Instead of such hidden spying, we will personally send you videos. Hope you will also notice the public anger towards your government in these videos. Don't misuse the Police Force!" Patil tweeted.
"Is this democracy? At whose behest is it being done? We never misused power. But emergency is being imposed via the back door and this is the BJP's plan," a statement quoted Pawar as saying.
