MUMBAI: A video of golden plates being used to serve food for senior Congress leaders during a recent royal treat at Osmanabad in Maharashtra has gone viral across the State as the poll campaign for the zilla parishad and municipal corporations is heating up.

Maharashtra Pradesh Congress committee president Ashok Chavan, leader of Opposition in the Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil and former Union home ministers Sushilkumar Shinde and Shivraj Patil were some of the prominent leaders who were at Yengur in Osmanabad to kickstart the poll campaign for ZP elections on Friday. Local party workers had thrown a royal feast in honour of the leaders, where they were served in golden plates.

Reports said the golden plates were specially brought in from Nanded. A tainted contractor is said to have made all the arrangements. The propriety of holding such a royal feast is being questioned especially against the backdrop of former CM Prithviraj Chavan turning down a similar extravaganza earlier.
