Mumbai, July 15 : New Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Ajit Pawar, may face legal trouble as the Bombay High Court is all set to hear on July 21 a PIL filed by advocate Nanasaheb Jadhav seeking criminal action against the Deputy CM, his uncle and NCP chief Sharad Pawar, and party leader Supriya Sule for their role in alleged irregularities in the development of the Lavasa hill station, source said here on Saturday.

Jadhav filed a writ seeking an urgent hearing before a division bench of Acting Chief Justice Nitin Jamdar and Justice Arif Doctor on July 12, alleging that as Ajit Pawar has become Deputy CM he could use his power to tamper with the “relevant documents”.

“Ajit Pawar recently became the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra. Now there is a threat that respondent Ajit Pawar and others will use their power to hamper relevant documents.

Consequently, this PIL needs an urgent hearing,” read the praecipe.
