Devendra Fadnavis-led Maharashtra government on Tuesday scrapped irrigation project tenders worth Rs 6,000 crore that are under the scanner of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) in connection with the state’s multi-crore irrigation scam.

The move by the Maharashtra government comes as a major setback to Ajit Pawar, who allegedly cleared projects worth Rs 20,000 crore when Congress-NCP alliance was in power.

According to reports, Pawar, who was Water Resource Minister at the time, had cleared the projects without getting clearance of the Governing Council of Vidarbha Irrigation Development Corporation (VIDC).
