Now, Sena minister faces allegations of land grab
The Shiv Sena’s minister of state for housing, Ravindra Waikar, may be in trouble over allegations of land grab in the city’s green lung, Aarey Milk Colony.
Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam on Wednesday alleged that Waikar had grabbed 20 acres in the Aarey Colony on the pretext of building a gymnasium for tribals living there.
Waikar refuted the allegations and said Nirupam had a habit of making accusations without any substance.
The allegations against Waikar come even as his party has been opposing the BJP-led state government’s move to hand over land at Aarey Colony for a Metro car depot.
