Former Maharashtra minister and MLA from Brahmapuri Vijay Wadettiwar lashed out at the Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for supporting senior cabinet minister Mahadev Jankar, whose video clip went viral where he was seen pressurising Wadsa’s SDO for rejecting congress candidate Jesabhai Motwani’s nomination papers for the election of municipal council president. The State Election Commission has already given a show case notice to the minister (of Animal Husbandry and Dairy Development) and lodged a police complaint against him. Calling for an attention motion under rule 57, Wadettiwar, along with other opposition members, sought Jankar’s ouster today in the assembly. The speaker denied his demand and finally adjourned the house as the opposition MLAs relentlessly created ruckus over the issue.
Attacking Devendra Fadnavis, Waddetiwar said (watch video), “The CM had sacked Eknath Khadse pending enquiry of the allegations against him but he is now supporting Jankar despite a police complaint against him.”
