Maharashtra Bharatiya Janata Party leader Kirit Somaiya on Friday filed a complaint with the police in Raigad district seeking an inquiry into ‘bungalows’ allegedly linked to Rashmi Thackeray, wife of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
Somaiya tweeted his complaint filed with the Revdanda police station in the adjoining district.
In a related development, family members of late architect Anvay Naik, linked to the property row, claimed the BJP leader has made their life ‘miserable’ and sought police protection from the government.
“We were told that there are 19 bungalows in Korlai village of Raigad district (allegedly) owned by Rashmi Uddhav Thackeray. The written answers to our queries were same so far. Today, we visited Korlai gram panchayat (administrative body of the village). Since last two days, the Sarpanch (elected head of gram panchayat) has been telling us that there are no bungalows,” said Somaiya in his complaint.
The former MP asked the police to inquire what happened to these bungalows.
The BJP leader has been alleging that there was no mention about the ownership of the property in the CM’s affidavit filed with the Election Commission when he was elected to the legislative council in May 2020.
Sena MP and spokesperson Sanjay Raut had earlier challenged the BJP leader to show the sites where these houses have been constructed.
Somaiya separately said, Documents provided by the Korlai gram panchayat indicate that Rashmi Uddhav Thackeray and Maneesha Ravindra Waikar (wife of a Shiv Sena leader) have purchased these houses from Anvay Naik. But Uddhav Thackeray never mentioned it in his election affidavit.
