Congress MLA Ravindra Dhangekar Lands in Hot Water Over Verbal Assault: Legal Battle Ensues

Ashanagar Water Tank Inauguration Turns Chaotic as Pune Municipal Corporation Officer Faces Alleged Abusive Language from Shivajinagar Congress Leader

In a dramatic turn of events during the inauguration ceremony of the Ashanagar water tank in Gokhalenagar on January 26, Congress MLA Ravindra Dhangekar has found himself at the center of a brewing controversy. Accused of using abusive language during a confrontation with Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) official Nandkishore Jagtap, the incident has led to a police case against the prominent Shivajinagar Congress leader.

Background of the Incident:

The Ashanagar water tank inauguration, initially scheduled for January 26, became a flashpoint of tensions between Congress MLA Ravindra Dhangekar and PMC official Nandkishore Jagtap. The ceremony, which was supposed to have Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar’s participation, faced disruptions as both Congress and BJP vied for credit for the project. The tensions escalated to the point where Deputy CM Pawar opted to skip the event upon learning about the presence of Congress leaders, leading to heightened tensions.

Heated Confrontation and Abusive Language:

As the situation intensified during MLA Dhangekar’s attempted inauguration, a heated confrontation unfolded with the police. Matters took a severe turn when Dhangekar allegedly used abusive language towards Nandkishore Jagtap—an act that was captured on video and subsequently circulated on social media platforms. The video, shared by former Mayor Murlidhar Mohol, General Secretary of Maharashtra BJP, has significantly amplified the reach of the incident.

Legal Ramifications and Public Outcry:

In response to the incident, the Municipal Engineers Union organized a protest condemning Dhangekar’s actions. Subsequently, a formal complaint was filed at the Chatushringi police station, resulting in the registration of a case against the Congress MLA and his associates. The charges include obstructing government work during the water tank inauguration. The legal proceedings are expected to shed light on the consequences for Dhangekar and his associates involved in the altercation.

Community Reaction and Political Fallout:

The incident has sparked a public outcry, with citizens expressing dismay over the use of abusive language in a public setting. The political fallout remains uncertain as the controversy surrounds the actions of a prominent Congress leader. The legal proceedings will not only determine the legal consequences for Dhangekar but also the potential impact on his political career and the Shivajinagar Congress faction. As the situation unfolds, the community awaits clarity on the repercussions of this high-profile altercation.
