Old Goa: Adv. Aires Rodrigues has today filed a complaint with the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) against Power Minister Pandurang Madkaikar and his wife Janita Madkaikar the Sarpanch of Old Goa Panchayat seeking a probe into their huge disproportionate assets.

Pointing out that Pandurang Madkaikar’s Nikitasha Realtors Pvt Ltd had on 1st April this year inaugurated a huge palacial bungalow in survey No 144/1 and 144/2 at Old Goa estimated to have cost around a whopping 200 crores, Adv. Rodrigues has demanded that the ACB register an FIR under Sections 13(1) (d& (e) of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988 and Section 120-B of Indian Penal Code against Pandurang Madkaikar and his wife Janita Madkaikar and tospeedily investigate the case.

Adv. Rodrigues along with his complaint has given the ACB photographs of the bungalow and a copy of the Affidavit dated 13th January 2017 filed by Pandurang Madkaikar along with his nomination papers at the 2017 Assembly Elections.

Adv. Rodrigues has drawn the attention of the ACB  that in his Income-tax returns for the financial year 2015-16 Pandurang Madkaikar had shown his total income for the year as a mere Rs 1,44,389 and that of his wife Janita, a paltry sum of  Rs 24,389.

Adv. Rodrigues has in his complaint stated that amongst his other liabilities and dues Pandurang Madkaikar had shown a Personal loan of 10 lakhs he had taken from Shiv Samarth Motors owned by Revenue Minister Rohan Khaunte and another Personal loan of 5 lakhs obtained from his brother Dhaku Madkaikar.

Adv. Rodrigues has further stated that amongst Janita Madkaikar’s other liabilities and dues, was a Personal loan of 10 lakhs she had obtained from Rajesh Khaunte the brother of Rohan Khaunte and another Personal loan of Rs 6, 24, 361 she got from her husband Pandurang Madkaikar.

Stating that a perusal of the Affidavit of  assets and liabilities filed by Pandurang Madkaikar clearly reveals that the construction of this new palacial bungalow at Old Goa was  clearly disproportionate to the known source of income of Pandurang Madkaikar his wife Janita,  Adv. Rodrigues has drawn the attention of the ACB that the Madkaikars had in their affidavit shown that they own only one residential building  at Old Goa  in Survey No. 143/1 with the plot admeasuring 875 sq mts and the total built-up area 580.7 sq mts  valued at Rs. 69,68,400/.

Adv. Rodrigues in his complaint has also informed the ACB that as Power Minister Pandurang Madkaikar and Old Goa Sarpanch Janita Madkaikar are public officials he has through a letter addressed to their respective Competent Authority sought sanction to prosecute them.
