“I have ordered my officials to transfer all the salary accounts, tax accounts, etc., to a nationalised bank. It is a rule that all government related accounts should be in nationalised banks. I have asked them to do all the transactions of TMC through nationalised banks,” said Mhaske to CNN-News 18. He also stated that it is mere coincidence if the private bank happens to be Axis Bank, otherwise the intention is clear. “It is the money of the people. If anything goes wrong in a private bank, then these organizations should not face any problems, that is our intention behind taking this decision,” Mhaske was quoted as saying by CNN-News18.
