Nagpur: Gajanan Ghadge, former deputy Sarpanch of Khursapur village who was named by Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday as someone whose land was given away to BJP president Nitin Gadkari's firms has been found missing. His wife Durga Ghadge, has confirmed this while talking to reporters.

However, earlier in the day, Gajanan Ghadge himself had purportedly told a TV news channel from an undisclosed location that there was no wrongdoing on Gadkari's part and though his land had been acquired, he was still cultivating it.      

‘India Against Corruption' leaders Kejriwal and Anjali Damania had alleged on Thursday that former Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra Ajit Pawar gave away farmers' land near Wadgaon dam in Nagpur district, acquired by the state earlier to Gadkari's firms.

However, Sudhir Diwe, the Managing Director of Gadkari's Purti Sugar factory, said Ghadge was a share holder of the factory, and still cultivated his land, though he did not own it anymore.
