Attacks Y.P. Singh for making accusations based on “half-baked information”

Slamming former IPS officer and lawyer Yogesh Pratap Singh for levelling “baseless accusations” at him, Maharashtra Industries Minister and senior Congress leader Narayan Rane on Friday said that all the clearances in the Lavasa Hill city project were given as per law. Mr. Singh had accused Nationalist Congress Party President (NCP) president Sharad Pawar and his family of being neck-deep in corruption in the controversial housing project, while also alleging inaction on Mr. Rane’s part. Mr. Rane was the State Revenue Minister when the project received the clearances.
