Fadnavis assured both the Houses that an inquiry would be conducted in the alleged wrongdoings by the official and, if found guilty, action would be taken against him.

Ajit Pawar said: "There is an audio recording (CD) where Mopalwar is clearly engaged in a dialogue with an individual demanding bribe to regularise the 15,000 sq ft land deal in Borivali". There are other allegations of corruption against the senior IAS officer.

Munde said the government had no answers to questions raised by the opposition. Mehta has also approached the Commissioner of Police seeking an inquiry into a letter being circulating in his name, which alleged that his own party members were supplying information against him to the Opposition. Mopalwar was also in-charge of the CM's pet project Mumbai-Nagpur Expressway.

According to the Newspaper, But, it's clear that Fadnavis is unlikely to go out of his way to defend the minister.Here's why:Mehta has been accused of involvement in irregular land deals, in which government norms were flouted and certain contractors favoured.

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday ordered a probe against senior bureaucrat Radheshyam Mopalwar who, Opposition leaders said, was allegedly involved in corruption over land transactions.

Mopalwar's dismissal, though only till the probe is completed, is a major victory for the opposition Congress and Nationalist Congress Party who disrupted business in both the houses of the State Legislature on Wednesday and Thursday.

Replying to the issue raised by former Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavhan, Fadnavis said that the allegations will be probed.

After that, the cooperative will begin gradually to introduce electrical load to the line. CHEC said they will try to give those in the villages notice that outages will occur.

"The way the Fadnavis government is going soft in Mopalwar case, it dents the image of the BJP-led government".

Raising questions over the claim of a transparent government, Chavan said: "Mopalwar should be immediately suspended".

"Last year, the BJP government had asked the then revenue and agriculture minister Eknath Khadse to step down after allegations were levelled against him".

Leader of Opposition in the Assembly, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, also demanded the removal of state urban development minister Prakash Mehta.

While sanctioning the changes, Mehta had wrongly mentioned in the project file that he had kept the chief minister in the loop, which was denied by Fadnavis. The final decision will be taken by the party's top brass in Delhi , As Reported By Hindustan Times.

Members of the ruling parties then chose to stage a walk out against the "high handedness" of the opposition and against "their act of flouting rules, creating ruckus and disrupting the proceedings of the Upper House". I have already ordered a stay to the project after I learnt about the irregularities.
