Charging the Modi government with holding the premier investigating agency CBI as 'hostage', Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad  Pawar said here on Monday this could have disastrous consequences for the country.Terming the Central Bureau of Investigation as an independent  body for carrying out impartial probes, Pawar said that shunting out its top officials at the dead of the night portends ill for the nation."It is clear that the  government wants everything should move as per its wishes in the direction it decides. That is the present scenario before us," said Pawar, addressing  a NCP women's wing rally.He alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has "no faith in the Constitution, respect for judiciary or the law of the  country or belief in gender equality"."In the Sabarimala temple matter, after the Supreme Court ruled in favour of women, BJP President Amit Shah  questioned how the apex court could give such a verdict. It is dangerous to hand over the reins of power to people with such thinking," Pawar  said.Pawar accused the BJP of not having respect for gender equality or honouring even the verdict of the highest court of the land."Even  Maharashtra, which is in the grip of a severe water crisis, has not taken a single decision in public interest," he said.
