The MVA demanded the resignation of Maharashtra CM Shinde over an alleged NIT land scam
Amidst noisy scenes and walkouts by the Opposition – both in the Legislative Council and Assembly Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde found himself being targeted over the allocation of 4.5 acres of Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) land to 16 developers at throwaway prices. This case relates to when he was serving as the Urban Development Department (UDD) minister in the year 2020.
The Leader of Opposition in the Council Ambadas Danve said that the said land, which was approximately valued at ₹83 crore was given away to developers at a mere 3 crore. Refuting all allegations, Shinde said that when the said case came up to him, he followed the same rule (the Gunthewari Act of NIT) that was applied to all other plots. At the time there was no mention of the court ruling at all.
Defending Shinde, the Deputy CM Fadnavis said that it was the NIT’s fault that the judicial facts of the matter were not brought up in front of the minister. Hence, even the court did not rap the government. In addition, he informed that the government has cancelled the allocations of these plots.
