    Responding to the allegations of scam against women and child development minister Pankaja Munde, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has said that “prima facie” she seemed to have done nothing wrong.

    Opposition Congress and others in Maharashtra have raised the issue of Rs 206 crore-worth purchases sanctioned by Munde for women and child welfare department on a single day, alleging that she violated rules in the process.

    Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis has said that the government is ready to conduct a probe into allegations, if Opposition furnishes evidence of violation of norms.

    Below is a pointwise clarification of allegations against Pankaja Munde as sources have told Niti Central.

    1. The different purchases worth Rs. 206 Cr. For Anganwadis was carried out without eTendering process
    Clarification: This is a false allegation. The purchases made by Women and Child Development have been done based on Govt. Approved Rate Contracts. eTendering is not needed when the Rate Contracts are available.

    1. The Government Resolutions related to the purchase have not been uploaded on the Govt. Website
    Clarification: As these are purchase related work orders, they were not put on the govt. website. In the tenure of the previous governments also, Govt. Resolutions related to any of the purchases were not put on the website.

    1. The purchase was approved without verifying the manufacturing capacity of M/s SuryakantaMahilaAudyogicSahakariSanstha
    Clarification: The rate contract was approved on verification of all the points associated with the manufacturing units of M/s SuryakantaMahilaAudyogicSahakariSanstha by the Technical Team of the CSPO. The Women and Child Development Department has also verified the unit. Therefore the allegation that the purchases were approved without verifying the manufacturing capacity is wrong.

    1. The purchase from M/s Bhavani Enterprises was approved in only one day
    Clarification:Rate Contract is available for M/s Bhavani Enterprises and therefore the purchase was approved. However, the propaganda being made in this regard is completely false. The purchase from M/s Bhavani Enterprises was approved on the basis of Govt. Rules and Laid Down process.

    1. The contracts were allotted to unauthorized Firms
    Clarification: This allegation is also an utter falsehood. The purchase orders were allotted to the firms authorized in Rate Contracts provided by the approved agencies. Contracts are not allotted to any unauthorized firm.

    1. M/s Jagadguru Printing Pvt. Ltd. does not have copyright registration
    Clarification: Shree Tekawade has done the copyright consent agreement with M/s Jagadguru Printing Pvt. Ltd. In this, as per the Terms and Conditions of the contract, the rights for printing, selling, and publication of the associated books are available with M/s JagadguruPrinting Pvt. Ltd and therefore purchase order was given to M/s Jagadguru Printing Press.

    1. Cheque of values of Rs. 5.6 crores was credited in to the account of the contractor.
    Clarification: This allegation is also a complete falsehood. The Commissioner of Women and Child Development has issued the cheque in the name of the associated firm i.e. M/s Jagadguru Printing Pvt. Ltd. The cheque was not issued in the name of any individual.

    1. The Water Filter of value Rs. 4500 was purchased at Rs. 5200.
    Clarification: The Govt. Rate contract mentions the cost of Water Filter at Rs. 4500 and Water Filter with Storage Capacity at Rs. 5200. The water filter with storage capacity has been purchased and therefore the allegations made in this regard are baseless and misleading for the people. The water filter with storage capacity has been done based only on the costs mentioned in the Rate contract.

    1. M/s Suryakanta does not have its plant to manufacture Chikki.
    Clarification: M/s Suryakanta has its own plant.This plant is at Vengurla and it has been verified.

    1. The provision for Medical Kits was for Rs. 500 and yet Rs.720 were charged.
    Clarification: This allegation was also completely false and misleading. Medical Kits have been purchased based on the provisions of the Central Govt. at Rs. 599/-. As per the Terms and Conditions mentioned in the Tender, The Commissioner (Integrated Child Development Scheme) has the rights to change the quantity of the Medicines and the cost of Medical Kit was reduced to Rs 599/- from Rs. 720 to fit into the limit of the Central Govt. of Rs. 600/-.

    I don't know about the allegation but munde is stupid..... In every speech she talks of her father
    .
    I remember one line of samartha ramdas..... Whom bjp respects
    .
    that line is - " sange wadilanchi kirti, to ek murkh" . Meaning the one who tells greatness of his forefather is a stupid.

    Can anybody independently analyse the allegations and explanations given above.

    I believe the opposition parties and their favoured suppliers lost out on contracts, hence this issue was raised.

    Any comments?

    one allegation is that M/S Suryakanta has had been in trouble earlier several times due to violation of norms and production of sub-par products, then why was it given a contract. BTW, its headed by a woman who's the President of the congress party women-wing of some distt.

    does the teaching imply that only those take the crutch of boasting about and cashing on their elders' achievements, who have nothing to their own merit/work (or the lack of it)?!
