First know, who is Satish UEK

According to media reports, social worker Satish Uike is lodged in Arthur Jail in Mumbai. Uike has also complained to the Election Commission against Maharashtra Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis. He had filed a petition against Fadnavis in a local court saying that he had hidden information about criminal cases in his election affidavit in 2014.
