On Friday, Maharashtra Cooperative minister Subhash Deshmukh admitted of 'irregularity' in cash transaction at his business group. Recently, 91.5 lakh cash was found in a vehicle owned by business group.
By clarifying his side on this issue he said “There might have been some irregularity, but it was certainly not wrongdoing. I am ready to accept any action for the irregularity,”
The Election Commission gave notice to Lokmangal to clarify about the cash within 24 hours. The minister said “I have never used my political background for my business. In fact I’ve been a successful businessman even before I joined politics some 15 years ago. Transactions of such large amount are not new to my business. My family has been running the business very honestly. We pay all taxes,”
Opposition party and NCP leader Dhananjay Munde has put several allegations on him and wants the resignation of Deshmukh.
