THE BROTHER RETURNS
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.
