Mumbai, July 1 (ANI): Maharashtra Women and Child Welfare Minister Pankaja Munde will on Wednesday hold a press conference to clarify her stand on the charges of corruption levelled at her.
Munde had earlier dismissed the allegations, maintaining that she has not violated any rules.
According to reports, all government procurements over Rs three lakh are to be made through e-tenders. However, the Maharashtra Women and Children Development Ministry cleared the overcharged purchase orders for anganwadi schools without inviting tenders.
The incident came to light after the Ahmednagar Zilla Parishad president wrote to Munde, complaining about the quality of food (chikki) distributed to tribal students under the Integrated Child Development Services. (ANI)
