Controversy

On 10 January 2017, the Mumbai High Court criticized Kelkar for not following due process before filing a public interest litigation through his organization, the Citizen Forum for Sanctity in Educational System, against 346 colleges in Maharashtra for allegedly submitting false information to the All India Council for Technical Education.[3] The Court asked if the petitioner had first approached the police seeking to file the litigation against the colleges, which the petitioner's lawyer said they had not. The Court also held that Kelkar should have raised the issue in the Legislative Assembly, being an MLA.
