ControversiesLocked CPWD Engineers
CPWD Junior Engineer and contractor blamed Ashish Singh Patel and his family for locking them in their home in 2016. The contractor claimed that they were locked up by the minister and his family due to delay in work caused by the tiles not coming that day in an interview and said,

"Tiles didn’t come today. It will come tomorrow morning. They accused us of delaying the work and then locked us up. We were told that we will be locked up until the tiles don’t come."

Denying the allegations in an interview, Ashish claimed that the CPWD workers were only scolded by their staff members and said,

"I am not the in-charge of the bungalow and I was inside. When I came out, the workers were being scolded by the staff of the minister for delaying the work. If somebody thinks that we held them captive then they can take legal action against us." [2]ABP Live
