Zoting Commission reserves order on Khadse plea over jurisdiction

Eknath Khadse
Nagpur: The Dinkar Zoting Commission probing into allegations of illegal land transfer by former Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse on Friday reserved its order on the application moved by him seeking reconstitution of issues before the Commission. “At the time of final order, the issues raised by Khadse will be decided whether the Commission is overstepping its jurisdiction or not. At the moment, decision on the matter would be inappropriate,” the Commission said.

During his deposition before the Commission, Khadse had argued that when the petition pending before the High Court was dealing with matters related to ownership of the Bhosari land in question and whether it was ever acquired by the government for the MIDC, the Commission would be overstepping its jurisdiction.

The next hearing will be held on Monday, April 24, 2017.

Senior counsel M G Bhangde appeared on behalf of Khadse while Adv Chandrashekhar Jaltare represented MIDC.
