Soon after Munde's accident, a strong demand for further investigations into the mishap was raised by Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and BJP leaders such as Prakash Anna Shengde and Awadhut Wagh.
Phadnavis along with Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari earlier today had met the Home Minister demanding a CBI probe into the death of Munde. He said that the duo had appraised the Home Minister of people's wishes regarding an investigation into the death of Munde, reported media.
