The state home minister and NCP leader said, “During the last one and a half months you saw that despite being a senior police officer, Pandey was talking as if he was a senior BJP leader and now this has been proved right.”
Deshmukh said “He has resigned … I would like to say only one thing that this was a BJP conspiracy to discredit Maharashtra and the police here keeping in mind the Bihar elections.” After taking voluntary retirement on Tuesday, Pandey said the next day that he is now ‘free’ and contesting elections is not a wrong thing.
