THANE: NCP MLA and cabinet minister Jitendra Awhad on Tuesday hinted of an unholy nexus operating within the municipal corridors and urged Thane municipal commissioner Dr Vipin Sharma to initiate a detailed probe to know how illegal structures were being blatantly constructed in the city.

The minister, in a series of tweets, also questioned the silence of Sharma over the illegal constructions claiming he had personally met the commissioner and alerted of few illegal constructions while party colleague former MP Anand Paranjape had also updated of few illegal structures but to no use. Awhad questioned if the administration was selectively acting on structures.

“I had met the commissioner and apprised him of the situation. I had cautioned him when the constructions had just begun but there was no action till the structures came up and now the administration is busy exhausting its resources in demolishing them,” he said.

“Order an audit for illegal buildings in elite areas likeNaupada and Vartaknagar. Who were the officers there, are they not responsible” “.…all were enjoying with a fixed rate per foot…..Why not an inquiry and I will give proof,” the minister tweeted indicating an unholy nexus within the administration and also challenged the commissioner to initiate an inquiry.

When contacted, the Thane commissioner said he was unaware of the tweets.

Meanwhile, the BJP jumped into the situation and has now urged the neta to take action himself instead of tweeting.

“The NCP cabinet minister should not just tweet but take some action in this regard and ensure the concerned official is exposed and stern disciplinary action is taken on him,” said BJP corporator Manohar Dumbre.
