Land deal scam: Trouble mounts for Khadse as BJP mulls action

New Delhi: Trouble mounted for Maharashtra Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse, presently embroiled on charges of dealing with ‘black money’ in the purchase of Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC), as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday said that a decision would soon be taken regarding his fate in the party.

“The way the matter has been brought to light in the media, some facts can be highlighted. With new facts out, Eknath Khadse is under a cloud of suspicion and the party is sure to take a decision soon,” former Mumbai police commissioner and now BJP leader Satyapal Singh told ANI.

However, he asserted that Khadse, a prominent leader, should introspect his deeds soon.

According to reports, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has been summoned to the national capital by party chief Amit Shah to discuss the matter.

A delegation of Congress leaders yesterday met Maharashtra Governor Vidyasagar Rao and demanded Khadse’s resignation over the land deal and his alleged involvement in calls made to gangster Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan.

However, Khadse had earlier denied changing reservation of the MIDC plot at Bhosari, as acquisition process was in progress. (ANI)
