Independent MLA from Achalpur Bacchu Kadu on Tuesday allegedly slapped B R Gavit, deputy secretary, General Administration Department (GAD) over latter not allowing his associate to live in government quarters.

Kadu’s associate who is currently living in government quarters has been allotted a flat under the 10% scheme. A complaint was registered with GAD in this connection.

Kadu went to Gavit on behalf of his associate who wants to hold on to government accommodation. However, Gavit informed him that it was not possible as he already had a flat under the 10% scheme.

The discussion between the two soared up and infuriated by Gavit’s adamant stand Kadu slapped him. (ANI)
