He said that total 20 houses would be constructed for the needy people under this scheme.
Tawadkar said that none of the tree which was procured under auctioning of the forest department was “live” but in fact had fallen due to natural calamities or ageing.
The speaker said that Bhandari along with others termed him as “Veerappan.”
He also challenged Bhandari to show that five truck load of wood was transported to the mill.
Tawadkar said that the teak wood was never transported to the mill. He said that the wood was not of Sagwan.
