"I have no connection with the building, which was demolished by BMC. Her allegations against me are totally false," Pawar told reporters on Thursday.
Ranaut, according to reports, had said the building, which was demolished belonged to the NCP chief. Ranaut has been making headlines with her statements and revelations about the Hindi film industry after actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai residence in June.
She had been provided with Y-plus category security cover by the Union Home Ministry in the wake of the row over her remarks, in which she compared Mumbai with Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and also targeted the Mumbai police. Recently, the actor had also moved the Bombay High Court against the demolition drive by BMC at her property in Mumbai here. The NCP chief had called a meeting of Congress and his own party leaders over the Bhima Koregaon issue.
"There are arrests happening under the pretext of calling people Naxals. We discussed these issues today. We are taking the opinions of leaders on the issue. Though the matter is being investigated by the NIA, the state government, too, has some rights," he said. (ANI)
