Although there was no official confirmation at the time of filing this report, news agencies said that the decision to resign may have been a consequence of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis briefing Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah on the issue on Friday.
Khadse, a senior BJP leader and considered "number two" in the Cabinet, is facing heat over a host of allegations including irregularities in a land deal in Pune, and calls allegedly received from mob boss Dawood Ibrahim's residence in Karachi on his mobile phone.
"I have not received any directive from the party. I am a loyal BJP worker and will act according to any directive coming from the party," he had said earlier in the week.
Khadse is in a spot over the reported purchase of a three-acre Maharashtra Industrial Development Corp land in Pune, allegedly at a low price of around Rs 3.75 crore from its original owner, in the name of his wife and son-in-law. The market value of the land is reportedly Rs 40 crore.
