After a week-long speculation over his continuity as a member of the cabinet, Maharashtra Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse handed his resignation on Saturday from all his ministerial portfolios after being embroiled in multiple allegations of corruptions.

He was kept on tenterhooks for the last 15 days after a Pune-based realtor Hemant Gavande made allegations of land grabbing against him. Khadse allegedly misused his position as the state’s revenue minister and illegally carried out sales deeds for a three-acre industrial plot Bhosari, Pune in the name of his wife and son-in-law, reported The Indian Express.

To add to his woe, Khadse’s phone number was also found in the call records of most-wanted gangster Dawood Ibrahim.

To many it seems to be a directive by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah. The resignation came after a phone call from Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari to Mr. Khadse, conveying that he should obey the party order.

An unfazed Khadse, however, maintained that he was not involved in any sort of murky land deals, he has also denied any links with Dawood Ibrahim.

But owing so all these allegations, many from his own party wanted him to resign. The speculation that has been doing the rounds since Monday finally took place today.


The Logical Indian appreciates BJP for making Khadse resign from his position for his involvement in the murky land deal. Such action should set an example for other political parties in our country and compel other lawmakers to resign if charges of corruptions are made against them.
