Union Minister Narayana Rane

Mumbai: The Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress coalition government appear to have decided not to let Union Minister, Naryana Rane so easily, as the government is reportedly directed by the Mumbai Municipal Corporation (MMC) to ask Rane to remove "unauthorised" construction taking place at his bungalow in suburban Juhu.

The BMC has reportedly given 15 days of time to comply with the order.

The notice issued last week says that the owner/occupiers of Adish bungalow, owned by the BJP leader, has/have been directed to remove the said "unauthorised" construction within 15 days from the date when the notice was issued, said the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials.


The notice also makes it clear that the BMC will have to use force including earthmovers to demolish the illegal structure built outside the house of Rane if the Minister fails to take action on the notice within the stipulated time.


The notice warned that "if you (the owner) fail to comply (with the direction), you will be liable for prosecution under section 475 A of the MMC (Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act." On February 21, a team of civic officials inspected the bungalow, located in the upscale Juhu area, for alleged violation of CRZ (Coastal Regulation Zone) norms.

Now, it will be interesting to see what Rane will do next. Will he follow the order or is going to take a legal course against the notice
