Mojo's had blessings of BJP leader, says Sanjay Nirupam
MUMBAI: A day after the Kamala Mills tragedy, it emerges there's a connection with Nagpur, home town of CM Devendra Fadnavis. A section of partners of Mojo's Bistro, one of the two restobars where the fire broke out, are from Nagpur. Significantly, it has come to light that BJP's Sudhakar Deshmukh, elected to the legislative assembly from Nagpur, had a role in BMC clearances for the pub.
"We have information BMC granted permission to Mojo's on the intervention of Deshmukh, a trusted aide of the CM," Mumbai Congress chief and former MP Sanjay Nirupam claimed in a statement on Saturday.
"Deshmukh was instrumental in securing permissions for illegal bars and pubs in Kamala Mills. The CM must initiate a probe against him too," he said.
