CM Devendra Fadnavis defends Pankaja Munde, says would conduct probe if needed

Mumbai: Reacting to the allegations of scam against women and child development minister Pankaja Munde, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis tonight said "prima facie" she seemed to have done nothing wrong.

"Prima facie there appears to be no wrong-doing (on Pankaja's part). If needed, we will probe the issue," he said.

"Pankaja called me and she said she had not committed any irregularity and is ready to face any inquiry," Fadnavis said.

Opposition Congress and others 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.
