MUM­BAI: The Bharatiya Janata Party is mulling ac­tion against Ma­ha­rash­tra rev­enue min­is­ter Ek­nath Kadse, ac­cused of wrong­do­ing on var­i­ous counts, but af­ter at a se­ries of high­power meet­ings through the day, it ap­pears no im­me­di­ate step is likely. The is­sue was dis­cussed by chief min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis with the BJP na­tional pres­i­dent Amit Shah and later with Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi in New Delhi on Thurs­day. Late in the evening, Khadse’s daugh­ter- in- law and Raver ( Jal­gaon) MP Rak­sha Khadse too met Modi.

“I have sub­mit­ted a fac­tual re­port on the mat­ters that have come up re­cently. We have dis­cussed them as well. The party will di­rect what­ever ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion has to be taken,” Fad­navis told re­porters af­ter meet­ing Shah at t he BJP head­quar­ters and sub­mit­ting a re­port on the con­tro­ver­sies re­lated to Khadse’s land deals. Highly placed sources in the party, who spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity, said given the na­ture of the al­le­ga­tions the lead­er­ship was in a dilemma whether to drop Khadse from the cab­i­net or just strip him of the cru­cial rev­enue port­fo­lio.
