It has also been alleged that Avinash Thakre has not yet submitted the report of an inquiry on irregularities in garbage collection.
BJP city president Pravin Datke has also said that a one-member inquiry committee of Congress corporator Praful Gudadhe should be constituted to probe the relationship between BJP and Sakode leaders. They will also provide necessary cooperation in the investigation. Even if Congress corporator Praful Gudadhe has evidence, a complaint should also be lodged with the police.
