Did you miss this Twitter fight of ‘aukat’ between Amruta Fadnavis and Priyanka Chaturvedi?

The current topic of discussion in Maharashtra politics revolves around Amruta Fadnavis, the spouse of Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis. The controversy surrounding her has escalated ever since a female designer was accused of offering a one crore bribe on her behalf. The police have taken note and initiated their own investigation, but Priyanka Chaturvedi from the Uddhav group has also raised concerns regarding Amruta Fadnavis’ involvement in the matter. As a result, a Twitter feud has ensued between the two, with both parties making comments about the other’s ‘aukat’.

Priyanka Chaturvedi took to Twitter and remarked, “A criminal’s daughter gains access to de facto CM’s house and is friends with his wife for over 5 years (as per DCM statement in assembly). Gives his wife jewelry, and clothes to wear (for promotion). Roams around with her in her car. The designer friend also tells her how they can make money by reporting bookies, raiding them& settling the same to earn money. Despite that their friendship continues. Now there are allegations of videos & blackmail. What is happening in Maharashtra Mr. Narendra Modi?”

The Shiv Sena MP tweeted, “Now on the floor of the house DCM says this is a political conspiracy! Who is the police reporting to in the state? – Home Minister Who is the Home Minister? Shri. Devendra Fadnavis. Who is the party that has complained? Amruta Fadnavis. Shouldn’t an independent investigation be undertaken in this case? This statement of the Home Minister claiming the videos are manipulated in his own family’s issue is incorrect&unethical. If this was an opposition leader the same DCM would have been screaming corruption, wrongdoing, media outraging, ED jumping, CBI entering, SIT constituting!”

Amruta Fadnavis replied to Priyanka Chaturvedi and wrote, “Madam Chatur (meaning smart) earlier you falsely claimed that I brought benefits to Axis Bank & now you are challenging my honesty? Of course-after gaining ur confidence, if someone had approached you to close cases by offering money-you would have helped such a person through your master-that’s your aukat (meaning status)”. However, when Amrita Fadnavis used the term ‘Aukat’ directly, Priyanka responded strongly.

Continuing the Twitter feud, Priyanka Chaturvedi tweeted, “Thankfully my aukaat isn’t taking designer clothes for promotion that leads to messy situations later, Ms Fad-noise. I don’t know why a demand for independent investigation has rattled you so much& honestly you should have reported her the day she gave you money making tips!”

In response to this tweet, Amruta Fadnavis wrote, “I know ur aukat is about switching masters & pulling down honest & independent women. Why do u need to ask Miss Chatur pokey nose for an independent investigation-I’m myself demanding for it. Let the truth reg deceit come out to light along with real faces behind this treachery.”

Amruta Fadnavis has lodged an FIR against an acquaintance named Aniksha, who is a designer by profession. Aniksha had allegedly offered Rs 1 crore to Amruta Fadnavis to get her father out of a police case. The FIR was lodged on 20 February, but the news came on 16 March. The accused woman has now been arrested.

During the investigation, it was revealed that the woman in question is not a designer, but the daughter of Anil Jaisinghani, a wanted bookie.

The accused Aniksha, who posed as a designer in this case, is actually a law graduate and a resident of Ulhasnagar in Thane district of Maharashtra. Her father, Anil Jainsinghani, has multiple cases registered against him in Maharashtra, Goa, and Assam for crimes such as betting, intimidation, cheating, and misleading government officials. Anil Jainsinghani is currently absconding, and Aniksha allegedly approached Amruta Fadnavis with the intention of seeking relief in these cases.
