BJP shields Manda Mhatre’s illegal construction despite Court order

While BJP screams ‘Zero’ tolerance to corruption, its own ministers are breaking the law and higher ups are obstructing the court orders to save them

Manda Mhatre bungalowIn what can only be termed as a blatant mockery of Law and order of the land and protecting its own Ministers wrong doings, BJP’s MOS (Minister of State:Urban Development ministry) Dr.Ranjit Patil, has indefinitely ‘stayed’ the High Court order issued on 29th January, 2016,  to Demolish the illegally constructed parts of BJP’s MLA  Manda Mhatre’s plush bungalow, on the basis of a frivolous and ridiculous letter from Manda Mhatre, asking for a ‘grace period’ of 25 days on 29 August 2016, as her Architect M/S Identity Architects, 405, Prabhat Centre, Belapur, was out of town.Amazingly, a similar ‘grace period’ of 45 days was asked for on 24th June 2016 !

The case dates back to 2015, when a complainant named Nitesh Dalvi, filed a complaint with the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation, citing illegal constructions in Manda Mhatre’s plush 4 storied building named Gaurav, located in plot no F-8, sector 29, Belapur, Navi Mumbai.

A survey was subsequently conducted on the structure on 1st December 2015 and a report was prepared and filed with the Municipal Corporation with clear indications of the violations of the MRTP Act and Development control regulations.

The complainant subsequently filed a PIL with the High Court which ordered action as per law after giving due hearing to Manda Mhatre.

In the meanwhile a very important Development took place in July 2016 and an honest, upright, dynamic and highly disciplined bureaucrat with zero tolerance to corruption and illegal activities : Tukaram Mundhe was appointed the Municipal Commissioner.

The hearing was conducted in presence of Municipal Commissioner Tukaram Munde on 10 July 2016 and orders for demolition were passed  hearing-report-after-hc-order.

Manda Mhatre then approached the Urban Development ministry on 29 August 2016, with a request for a ‘grace period’ of 25 days.

The Urban Development Minister Ranjit Patil rewarded her with an Indefinite stay by a mere rubber stamp on her request letter,as seen above

Ranjit Patil has been previously involved in controversy regarding a sale of a plot by him on which signature of a person declared dead 10 years was found in a sale document registered recently.More about that can be read here.

Kapil ShOne can easily recall the recent case of illegal constructions/alterations in Comedian Kapil Sharma‘s residence and office, wherein the entire might of state machinery came down heavily on him after he dared to tag the Prime Minister in a Tweet alleging demands for a bribe by Municipal Corporation in order to pass his plans.You can read more about the case here

In new developments, it has come to light that the plot on which Manda Mhatre has built her palatial house does not have a clear title. Discrepancies regarding the chain of documents have come to light and are being investigated by the Vigilance dept of CIDCO.

    1. Mayur Panghaal says

      I did what I can with my resources and efforts.Others should also do their bit.Just because Cong did it means BJP will also do it ? Then why Modi claimed he will be chaukidaar ?? Why he said na khaunga na khane dunga ? Or was that also jumla ? If it was,then what is different between cong and bjp ? Before elections Modi published books about Damaadshree and Italian waitress and Pappu…but nothing since past 2.5 years ?? Not even FIR ? Not even for coal scam against Maunmohan ? Whats the difference between BJP and Cong ?
