According to Kishore Chaudhary, the minister prepared the land purchase documents of his brother Nandkishore and also “posed” himself as the relative. Moreover, the minister himself signed all the land documents in place of Nandkishore. This dubious act of Bawankule amounts to “forgery” and warrants investigation by an independent agency and guilty punished, Chaudhary demanded.
Nagpur: Continuing his blitzkrieg of accusations against Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule, the NCP leader Kishore Chaudhary has put him in a tighter with a fresh revelation. According to Chaudhary, the minister prepared the land purchase documents of a relative and also “posed” himself as the relative. Moreover, the minister himself signed all the land documents in place of his relative. “This dubious act of Bawankule amounts to “forgery” and warrants investigation by an independent agency and guilty punished,” Chaudhary demanded.
According to Chaudhary, Bawankule had prepared documents of land purchase in the name of his brother Nandkishore alias Bapu Bawankule and done registry of the same on December 5, 1994. At the time of registry, the minister not only “posed” himself as Nandkishore but also signed all the documents in his place. “The land borders the National Highway and situated in the Koradi main market area. Currently, a building constructed on the land houses a branch of Nagpur Nagrik Sahakari Bank. The reality is that the land belongs to Government. Following the directive from High Court, the Government had returned a portion of land admeasuring around 500 sq mtr to the original owner from whom the land was acquisitioned,” Chaudhary claimed.
The NCP leader further said that Bawankule had shown the land as that of a person named Suleman Bhai and had purchased it in the name of his brother Nandkishore. The specimen of Bawankule’s signature he had put up at the time of registry could be seen at all the “dealings” he had done from February 24 till to date,” Chaudhary alleged.
Chaudhary further revealed that different rooms at the building constructed at the said land belonged to different relatives of the minister such as room number 9 is occupied by Narayan Bawankule, room 10 – Yadunandan, room 12 – Chandrashekhar Bawankule, first floor – Nandkishore and Purshottam Bawankule, second floor — Sanket Bawankule, and the third floor which is vacant belongs to Payal Bawankule. All these names have been mentioned in the government documents, Chaudhary said and added that the National Highway authorities have issued a notice for demolition of the said building. “If the building is not demolished by their own, the National Highway is going to do it,” he stated.
“In 1991, Bawankule had registered Akhil Bharatiya Prakalpgrast Berojgar Samiti. He himself was President of the Samiti at that time. The signatures Bawankule put up at various papers and memorandums match with the signatures he put up at the time of registry. Moreover, the signatures on a petition and affidavit Bawankule had filed in a JMFC Court No. 6 in 2002 match with the signatures he put up at registry documents. Also, the certificates of all the relatives Bawankule prepared with the help of “forged” documents bear the same signature of Bawankule only,” the NCP leader claimed.
Chaudhary further said that an agreement regarding the land deal was signed on April 4, 2000, by which one Radheshyam Nibone had sold his land to Nandkishore Bawankule. The writing on this agreement as well as signature as a witness is that of the minister. “This undoubtedly proves that Bawankule prepared the documents in the names of his relatives not by mistake but deliberately fraudulently and also signed them himself. On the basis of this documentary proof, the State Government and Chief Minister should initiate investigation by an independent agency and punish the guilty,” Chaudhary demanded.
