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.
