After RTI revelations, new Maharashtra CM may return flat

Maharashtra's new Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan may return a flat allotted in May 2003 under the MP's quota, now that a Right To Information application has revealed that he owns the flat provided under the discretionary quota. The application by RTI activist Anil Galgali, seeking the names of those who owned flats under the Chief Minister's discretionary quota, showed that Mr. Chavan possessed the flat at Wadala here. However, official sources said he was taking steps to return it. The flat was bought for Mr. Chavan's mother, Premlatai Chavan, who was being treated for cancer in Mumbai. As Mr. Chavan did not own a house in Mumbai, he applied for a house under the MP's quota so that family members could stay there while his mother was being treated. However, by the time the flat was allotted, she had died, it is learnt from the sources.
