The basic structure of our country’s governance is being altered. Despite their tall claims of about Lavasa being a city for all socio-economic classes, it is clearly intended for widening the gap between the haves and the have-nots. This is a form of apartheid, and in fact, a negation of our Constitution.
So the Indian Agriculture Minister is worried. An innocuous comment by a man caught in the throes of one of the biggest scams in Indian history seems to have awoken Maharashtra’s giant. Apparently, Ratan Tata’s suggestion that India seems to be in danger of turning into a banana republic was a call to action for Sharad Pawar. That along with Jairam Ramesh’s notice to Lavasa, of course. Pawar's daughter Supriya Sule and son-in-law Sadanand were major stakeholders in the Lavasa project when it was launched. However, the duo apparently divested their stake in 2004.
