O2 plant accounts frozen by Guj govt, Jignesh Mevani to move HC

Gandhinagar, May 12 (TIWN) Gujarat's Charity Commissioner has frozen the bank accounts of the NGO associated with independent legislator Jignesh Mevani's oxygen plant project. Mevani and the trust have decided to challenge the order in the high court.

Charity Commissioner Y.M, Shukla had on Monday issued show cause notice to NGO 'We the People', seeking reply from the organisation on authorisation given to the Independent legislator from Vadgam to raise funds from the public in the name of the organisation for setting up of oxygen plants and concentrators for his constituency.     For the past some time, Mevani has been in his constituency, appealing to the people to raise funds for setting up of an oxygen plant in the area.  "'We the People' charitable trust is a registered trust with the Charity Commissioner's office and the trust has been allowed to carry out public welfare activities and collect funds to do so. When I started appealing to the people to come forward and donate to set up an oxygen plant in Vadgam, many came forward including this organisation. We have decided to set up an oxygen plant, ventilator facilities and other important infrastructure regarding Covid care in my constituency," said Mevani.
