    The complainant Moreshwar Dadaji Ghadge resident of Jankinagar , is a social worker and a RTI activist. Earlier also Ghadge had exposed the land grab in Jankinagar by MLA Kohale.

    According to the complainant Moreshwar Ghadge, during the period 2012 to 2017 Sudhakar Kohale was a Municipal Councillor from Jankinagar Prabhag 62 . While contesting this election he had mentioned about the house in Jankinagar in the affidavit But this house is in the name of his wife and has been built in Mouza Chikhli Khurd, Khasra number 12/1 land number 156.

    Along with this he had mentioned of Mouza Khurd Khasra number 15/2 land number 64, Mouza Pipla , Khasra number 174 land number 1 and 5 acres agricultural land on Khasara number 168, 170, in Kalmeshwar’s Adasa, Similarly 3 acres of agricultural land on Khasra 146 in Mouza Champa, Saoner. He had described 5 properties in the affidavit while submitting it.

    While contesting the 2014 Assembly election, in the affidavit the Janiknagar house on Mouza Pipla land number 1 he had mentioned the land as 3000 sq ft while its is actually 3200. He had mentioned the Kalmeshwar and Saoner land too. While the agricultural land in Adasa , Kalmeshwar was in his mother’s name which he bought on 4 January 2010. He has registered sale deed in Sub Registar’s office (document number 13/2010). Kohale in his affidavit had mentioned the land as ancestral property which was misleading.

    He had mentioned about khasra number 15/2 land number 64 during the NMC ‘s 2012 election’s. But the same was not mentioned in affidavit during the assembly election in 2014. While in 2015 the the map of a building’s construction was got sanctioned from Nagpur Improvement Trust. He even built a four storeyed house on it. He also im[plemented NMC’s Abhay Yojana in this building and paid a tax of Rs 16,708. From this it is clear that the land belongs to him.

    The land at Mouza Chikli was bought in his and his wife’s name. While this land’s mutation has been done and is in the record of NMC. He also paid the property tax Rs 1642. He has not mentioned about this in the election affidavit and thus has misled the election commission and contested the election.

    On a Public Interest Litigation filed by the complainant Moreshwar Ghadge in JMFC court number 6 the court examined the documents and found the affidavit to be misleading and so had served summoned to Kohale to be present in court on 2 April 2018.

    Adv Tarun Parmar and Adv Sandip Gajbhiye has appealed on behalf of complainant Ghadge.

    Kohale even changed the documents on 23/10/2017 and destroyed the old ones by using pressure.
