THE BROTHER RE­TURNS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Vi­las­rao Desh­mukh will never learn. Not only is he jostling to re­turn as Ma­ha­rash­tra chief min­is­ter, but also he wants a Cab­i­net berth for his brother Dilip. As a first step he man­aged to get a ticket for Dilip for elec­tions to the state Leg­isla­tive Coun­cil, due on May 25. Dilip’s char­i­ta­ble trust in Au­rangabad stands on non- trans­fer­able wakf land and the Wakf Board passed stric­tures against the ac­qui­si­tion in 2010. Dilip was a min­is­ter in Ashok Cha­van’s Cab­i­net be­tween March and Oc­to­ber 2009 but Cha­van did not re­peat him af­ter win­ning the Assem­bly elec­tions.
