The BJP governments in Mumbai and New Delhi are really turning the heat up on Chhagan Bhujbal. A day after the Maharashtra government’s Anti-Corruption Bureau raided 16 properties of Bhujbal and his family, the Enforcement Directorate, which comes under the Union finance ministry, turned the screws on the senior NCP leader on Wednesday with two separate money-laundering cases.
His meeting with chief minister Devendra Fadnavis last week, nor his boss Sharad Pawar’s supposed equation with the BJP brass, appears to have cut any ice.
Chhagan Bhujbal is accused in one of the ED cases, but his son Pankaj and nephew Sameer are named in both cases that are a fallout of the two ACB FIRs filed against the family in the Maharashtra Sadan scam and the Kalina library land case last week. Developer K S Chamankar, who was given the Sadan contract without inviting tenders, and 17 others have also been booked.
