Lord Vitthal devotee offers Rs 1,500 cr for temple town Pandharpur
The businessman had met Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan in Pune last week. BJP leader Eknath Khadse, who was present at the meeting, confirmed the donation amount offered by the businessman “who is not a Maharashtrian but a devotee of Lord Vitthal”.
“The businessman, who is from South India, has requested that his name should not be disclosed,” he said. Chavan will hold another meeting with the businessman before taking a decision on accepting his donation, he said. “Another meeting is slated to take place in the next 10 days when I hope the CM will take the decision,” said Khadse.
