Nagpur, Dec 4 (PTI) Shiv Sena today raised objections to a legislator of the ruling NCP being part of the panel of presiding officers of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly.
Raising the issue in the House, Shiv Sena group leader Subhash Desai said objections are being raised over the inclusion of NCP MLA Jitendra Awhad being in the panel of presiding officers of the House.
"Awhad's inclusion in the panel is objectionable. Decorum of the House should be maintained," Desai said.
Awhad, who was in the House, said he has never denied that he had purchased a flat in the controversial Adarsh Housing Society building in south Mumbai.
"Even if there is one per cent truth in allegations of wrongdoing, I will retire from public life," Awhad said. "But if the allegations are proved false, Desai should also inform the House what he would do," he added.
