Pimpri Chinchwad Mayor Nitin Kalje is likely to get in trouble as his caste certificate was challenged by the district  caste validation committee.

In April, Bombay High Court had ordered caste validation vigilance committee to re-examin his caste certificate and submit the report to district caste validation committee. 

The committee has rejected the report submitted by vigilance committee.

Pimpri Chinchwad Mayor Nitin Kalje is likely to get in trouble as his caste certificate was challenged by the district  caste validation committee.

In April, Bombay High Court had ordered caste validation vigilance committee to re-examin his caste certificate and submit the report to district caste validation committee. 

The committee has rejected the report submitted by vigilance committee.

This raises a question over the caste claim made by Kalje. Ghanshyam Khedekar  who lost the election against Kalje had approached Bombay High Court  challenging caste claim of Kalje just after results  of civic polls.

He alleged that Kalje had submitted  bogus  caste  certificate of Kunbi caste for contesting the election, while Kalje belongs to Maratha caste which falls under open category.
