Recently, an FIR had been lodged against Munde by a woman, accusing him of raping her sister. Munde clarified that he was actually in a relationship with that woman and had two children. He accused the two women of blackmailing him.
A man named Hemant Patil a social worker and RTI activist who claims himself to be the president of Rashtriya Virodhi Janshakti has now filed an FIR against Munde.
Hemant Patil said that an FIR under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code must be registered by the police on the order of the court according to Article 226.
He said that candidates contesting elections are required to make declarations as per the Conduct of Election Rules.
Patil accused Munde of suppressing material facts and misleading the Election Commission of India. Munde had won the Parli Constituency with an NCP ticket. The plea also had a copy of an affidavit attached which Munde had submitted to the Election Commission in 2019.
It was mentioned in the affidavit that Munde had only two daughters. But it was known to his family including his wife and friends that Munde had an affair with another lady since 2003 and he had a son and a daughter of that lady which is not mentioned in the affidavit. It is clearly a violation of Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code and also certain provisions of the Representation of Peoples act.
The plea strongly states that if such crimes are not punished then more such ministers will sit on the chairs and spoil our country. It says Munde is the “main culprit” who first gave a false affidavit to the Election Commission of India when he was filling his nomination form for elections in 2019 and now holds the post of Minister of Social Welfare Department of the state.
Patil said that he had complained to the Parli Police Station and the Superintendent of the Police to register an FIR but they refused to do so. Looking at this, he decided to send mails to the Director-General of Police in Maharashtra and the Chief Election Commissioner of India.
