Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee chief Manikrao Thakre,came out openly in support of Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Commissioner Shrikar Pardeshi,and ruled out any possibility of his transfer. Thakre,was addressing the media at Kiwale on Thursday.

“Pardeshi is a capable officer and he is doing a good job. There is no question of his transfer,” Thakre said. His statement assumes importance in the wake of a growing clamour for Pardeshi’s transfer due to his drive against illegal constructions.

Both NCP and Congress corporators have sought his transfer. Many senior NCP leaders had asked Pardeshi’s removal as they feel the ongoing drive would be detrimental for the party’s chances in the upcoming elections.

Deputy CM Ajit Pawar had also denied any chances of Pardeshi being removed.
