Gadgil said that when renovation of ministers' chambers was underway between February to August 2015, trucks which removed debris made around 650 trips, as per the official records.
"It is very surprising. How come so much debris was removed from the Mantralaya (secretariat)," he said.
Pote said 20 contracts for removal of debris were given to Labour Cooperative Society for Rs 67.69 lakh during this period. The debris created by the work taken up before the new government came to power in 2014 were also removed, he said.
If any scam is found, strict action will be taken against the guilty, the minister assured.
