After mid-day’s exclusive front-page report about Standing Committee Chairman and Shiv Sena Corporator Yashwant Jadhav allegedly threatening a representative of a contracting firm to withdraw from projects in his E ward (Byculla), the BJP is leaving no stone unturned to take potshots at its former ally. BJP’s group leader in the BMC Prabhakar Shinde demanded a high-level probe and Jadhav’s resignation on Tuesday.
Surajpratapsingh Deora, Yash Corporation
Jadhav allegedly called Surajpratapsingh Deora, a representative of Yash Corporation, asking him to withdraw from projects the firm bagged for the first time through the e-tender process. Deora recorded the entire conversation and this paper is in possession of the audio clip. “The standing committee chairman’s act has earned a bad name for a prestigious and reputed institute like BMC. Hence, Jadhav should immediately step down from the post,” Shinde told mid-day.
Yashwant Jadhav is a corporator from Byculla’s ward no. 209.
