Act against Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis for 'favouring' wife's bank, ED urged
By New Indian Express 28-Aug-2019
Activist Mohnish J. Jabalpure shot off the letter to the ED in Nagpur, claiming that the government has directed officials of the police department to transfer the salary accounts of all its employees and other departments to private sector Axis Bank.
While this has benefited Axis Bank, it has reportedly caused a huge loss to the nationalised banks which were handling such salary accounts till then, he contended.
"I have already filed a public interest litigation in Bombay High Court (Nagpur bench) in this regard which is expected to come up for hearing on Thursday (August 29). Earlier, I have written letters to the Chief Secretary but no action was taken in the matter," Jabalpure told IANS.
In his petition, Jabalpure has accused Fadnavis - whose wife Amruta holds a top-level position in Axis Bank - of arbitrarily directing the salary accounts of lakhs of policemen of the state to be transferred to Axis Bank, vide a circular on May 11, 2017. A professional banker, Amruta Fadnavis, 40, is currently Axis Bank's Vice-President and Corporate Head for West India.
