Mumbai: Sunil Karve, one of the founder members of Mumbai Educational Trust on Wednesday wrote a letter to Chhagan Bhujbal, who recently took oath as minister in Eknath Shinde-led government along with Ajit Pawar, seeking an explanation about non-educational activities being carried out by him and his associates at the two campuses of trust.
MET is a charitable trust and it runs two campuses, including one in Mumbai’s Bandra Reclamation and another at Nashik’s Andgaon.
“In the last year, it has been brought to my notice that many government officials, mainly of the PWD Department, as well as many PWD contractors/businessmen have been frequenting the MET campuses in Mumbai and Nashik to meet you or another trustee, Samir Bhujbal,” wrote Sunil Karve.
He further said, “Many of these people carry big suitcases or boxes. This arouses suspicion in the minds of innocent staff members and students of our institute.”
Sunil Karve warned Bhujbal and demanded an explanation for activities being carried out by him and his family member.
“As a Founder Trustee for Life of Mumbai Educational Trust, I demand an explanation from you and also caution you and your family member to desist from this kind of underhand activities in both the mET campuses,” said Karve.
