New Delhi: The BJP will decide "appropriate action" on Maharashtra Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse, who is in the eye of a storm over allegations of corruption, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Thursday.

After a meeting with party chief Amit Shah in the wake of the raging row over Khadse, who also allegedly received telephone calls from a Dawood Ibrahim aide, Fadnavis said he has submitted a report to Shah and they discussed the matter.

"I have submitted a factual report on the matters which have come up recently. We have discussed them as well. The party will direct whatever appropriation has to be taken ahead," he told reporters after the meeting.

Khadse has been attacked by political rivals and BJP ally Shiv Sena over the alleged impropriety over purchase of a land belonging to the government-owned MIDC in Pune at a throwaway price.

The Maharashtra branch of the BJP has reportedly conveyed to the party in Delhi that there is no clear evidence to link Khadse to Dawood Ibrahim. Khadse had met the Maharashtra CM on Wednesday. However, he skipped a cabinet meeting and has stopped using his official car.

The Bombay High Court will on June 6 hear the petition filed by Manish Bhangale, a Vadodara hacker, against Revenue Minister Khadse in the matter.
