Mumbai – In a sensational revelation brought to fore by RTI activist Anil Galgali, the scam involving MHADA officials and IAS officers equaling the infamous Adarsh Society housing scam has surfaced.
According to RTI information received by Galgali, there are illegal flats are being built in the Maitri Society constructed by the MHADA for IAS officers at Kole Kalyan in Kalina. Contractor B. G. Shirke has been building 226 flats in this society at the cost of Rs 36.50 crore. Total 86 IAS officers including Pravin Darade, Bipin Shrimali, Harshdeep Kamble, Abhimanyu Kale etc are the members of the Maitri Society. The RTI information further revealed that more flats are being constructed at this society than the permission granted by the BMC. The MHADA authorities have even sent a proposal to the BMC to regularise this illegal construction at Maitri Society. Claiming that this scam is like that of Adarsh society, Anil Galgali has appealed to chief minister Devendra Fadnavis to conduct an inquiry into his allegation and take strict action under the MRTP Act.
The common people who keep facing the action by government agencies for their illegal action have demanded that this construction involving IAS officers should also be treated the same way.
