Mohit Kamboj alleges civic chief has property in USA
Geetanjali Minhas | March 26, 2022 | Mumbai
BJP leader Mohit Kamboj on Saturday alleged that Brihanmumbai municipal commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal has a property in the USA and he is going to inform the income tax department about it. Calling the claim “baseless” and an attempt to rake up a controversy, Chahal called upon Kamboj to come up with proof.
“The allegations levelled against me by Shri Mohit Kamboj today are baseless and an attempt to drag me into a controversy. I have zero property in USA. I would request him to substantiate this wild allegation with exact details. It is really sad and unfortunate that he is trying to rope me in his political fight,” said Chahal.
Kamboj added that that the IT department too had sent a notice to Chahal, to which the civic chief said that the claim made by Sameet Thakker in his tweet dated March4 that the IT department was all set to inquire him personally was “maliciously mischievous and factually incorrect”. Hence a complaint was immediately lodged against him.
“The IT dept notice mentioned by Shri Mohit Kamboj was a routine notice to seek information from BMC with effect from 2018 onwards regarding the IT matter relating to Shri Yashwant Jadhav (former standing committee chairman). This is only an inter-departmental sharing of information. These notices come and get answered at appropriate levels. This is exactly what I stated yesterday.”

“It is unfortunate that Shri Mohit Kamboj is trying to twist facts to malign me. I request Shri Mohit Kamboj that he should fight his political battles at political levels and not drag officers into this. Truth shall always prevail.”
