LEGISLATORS LIED AND FORGED TO GET CHEAP MAHDA HOMES IN MUMBAI

legistlation-1Several legislators could even lose their membership in the legislature for allegedly forging documents and lying under oath to get themselves cheap houses in Mumbai. It is alleged that many members of the legislative assembly and the legislative council declared falsely that they – or their spouses – did not own houses in Mumbai while applying for houses constructed by the MHADA. The serious act of perjury by MLAs cutting across various parties has reportedly forced Chief Minister Ashok Chavan to opt out of the allotment function. He was to distribute the keys of the 3 BHK flats to 105 legislators whose names were in the first list approved by MHADA. In all, 400 members of both houses of the legislature had applied for over Rs. 1 Crore flats that will cost this legislators Rs. 42.36 lakh only. Observers point out if among those who have applied and not yet submitted affidavits there are members who have homes in Mumbai they should still be held accountable because as lawmakers the least they should have known is that they are not eligible.
