‘BJP blackmailed Kavlekar for GIDC plots’
Congress spokesperson Sudip Tamankar alleged that BJP leaders in the assembly, had blackmailed former IDC chairman Chandrakant 'Babu' Kavlekar for allotment of plots in the industrial zone. If they want to make corruption allegations against the Congress, they should first revert their plots.
Speaking to mediapersons, Tamankar said that during the Congress regime, many BJP leaders were allotted plots. "If BJP leaders claim that the Congress regime was most corrupt, then we charge that they (BJP leaders) must have also availed of plots by way of corruption," he added.
He also said that if BJP leaders really care about the people of the state, they should have waited and allowed those plots to go to the wait-listed people. There were around 150 people in the waiting list, when plots were allotted to BJP leaders. [TOI]
