Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kirit Somaiya on Sunday claimed of exposing Rs 1000 crore scam alleging that Shiv Sena leader Yashwant Jadhav and his wife, an MLA, Yamini Yashwant bought 36 old buildings in Mumbai in the past two years.
“Shiv Sena leader Yashwant Jadhav and MLA Yamini Yashwant bought 36 buildings (old buildings of “Paghadi”) with 1000 flats/shops/offices in Mumbai in last 24 months. Rs 1000 crore scam exposed I am confident of actions by ED, Company Ministry, Income Tax Department in next few days,” the BJP leader tweeted.
Earlier this month, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut had alleged that Somaiya is among the beneficiaries of the multi-crore Punjab and Maharashtra Co-operative (PMC) Bank scam. He had also alleged that a top ED official had made investments in a Rs 260-crore project in Maharashtra’s Palghar. The Shiv Sena leader went further to allege that Kirit Somaiya’s son and wife are directors of the same project named ‘Nikon green Ville Project’.
