Pathak, in his PIL, said another person had obtained information from power generation and distribution companies through the Right to Information (RTI) Act. Based on the data, he alleged that Raut used chartered flights for his numerous trips to Mumbai, Nagpur, Hyderabad and Delhi for “administrative work” during the nationwide lockdown between June to September 2020, and had made the debt-ridden power companies pay his bills amounting to over Rs 40 lakh.,basketball-wives-bambi
The plea said the RTI queries made to the Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB) revealed that the minister had used chartered flights at the cost of Rs 14.45 lakh for two trips to Nagpur in June and July 2020 for “important administrative work”. Moreover, another RTI reply by the Maharashtra State Power Generation Company (MAHAGENCO) said it had approved nearly Rs 29 lakh for the minister’s three trips.,fantasy-cricket-app-sachin-tendulkar
