The clamour for Maharashtra Housing Minister Prakash Mehta's resignation is growing. Mehta is the second BJP minister after Eknath Khadse to have been embroiled in a controversy over real estate.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has already ordered an inquiry in the alleged SRA scam in South Mumbai's Tardeo area.
Earlier this week, Opposition members alleged that additional Floor Space Index was provided to a private developer - in violation of rules. It's alleged that the benefit for the builder was worth Rs 500 crore.
Documents with India Today show that Mehta noted on the file that he'd appraised the CM of the decision. But Mehta denied it on the floor of the house.
