Mumbai, June 06: Maharashtra governor Dr P C Alexander today summoned chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh and his deputy Chhagan Bhujbal and sought explanation from them regarding a complaint lodged by Sena-BJP leaders on the raid on a club and use of the state machinery in the entire episode.

Speaking to reporters after meeting the Governor here tonight, the Chief Minister said that they had informed Alexander that they received a call from NCP MLA Shirish Kotwal, a heart patient, stating that he needed immediate medical facility and hospitalisation.

The government, therefore, decided to deploy a police team and send some NCP MLAs to ascertain the situation.

He, however, assured that the ruling Democratic Front combine would not take any steps that would cause law and order problems or spark off any other crisis.
