Anjali Damania has urged the state government to seize the vehicle.
Former AAP leader Anjali Damania has made a shocking revelation that Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse’s son-in-law Pranjal Khewalkar illegally possesses Sonata Limousine. She has urged the state government to seize the vehicle. Damania also tweeted the picture of Khadse’s daughter, son-in-law and Limousine vehicle in support of her claim.
She tweeted, “Will BJP Govt seize Sonata Limousine bearing the registration number MH19AQ7800 of Dr Pranjal Khelwalkar, son- in-law of Eknath Khadse? The vehicle is not legal.”
When AV spoke to Anjali Damania she said, “How can Khadse’s son-in-law own Sonata Limousine when it is banned in Maharashtra. They are violating the rules and have failed to obtain permission from RTO for making alterations in the vehicle. As per rules modifications can be made only in ambassador vehicle.”
“Sharesh Parekh is only authorised to make modifications in the vehicle. Pradeep Thampi had bought the vehicle in 2001 and made alterations in it. The RTO had seized the vehicle and it was transferred to Haryana. Dr Pranjal Khewalkar purchased the vehicle on 27th September, 2012 and brought it in Jalgaon. Later, he registered it in Mumbai due to the influence of Khadse. He owns several luxury cars.”
Even though Khadse may not be directly involved in this issue but his son-in-law has invited a fresh trouble. Earlier the ACB had arrested Khadse’s close associate Gajanan Patil, who was accused of demanding a Rs 30-crore bribe in a land allotment case.
The Opposition has called for interrogation of Khadse’s OSD Unmesh Mahajan, with the ACB FIR containing recorded conversations between Patil and the complainant in which the former allegedly indicates that the bribe amount was conveyed by one ‘Unmesh’. A delegation of 30 MLAs from Congress had entered the office of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) office and demanded stringent action to be taken against Khadse.
Khadse said he would file a defamation case against complainant R K Jadhav and those who had levelled accusations at him. Khadse stressed he was open to any inquiry.
“This is a made-up case. The man is in the habit of making allegations repeatedly. Records from 2008 onwards make it clear that corruption charges have been made by him against those who did not act in his favour,” he said,
