Adarsh Housing Society scam of Mumbai divides Maharashtra Congress


Mumbai, July 9 (IBNS): The Maharashtra Congress unit has divided over the recent blame games by three former Maharashtra Chief Ministers -Sushil Kumar Shinde, Vilasrao Deshmukh and Ashok Chavan- on the Adarsh Housing Society scam of Mumbai.

The supporters of Ashok Chavan have reportedly written to Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan urging the state government to support him.

Meanwhile, twelve Congress MLAs walked out of a Congress Legislative Party meeting here on Monday to show their dissatisfaction over the treatment given to Chavan by the Congress, media reports said.

Congress leaders and ex CMs Sushil Kumar Shinde, Vilasrao Deshmukh and Ashok Chavan blamed each other when they deposed before the Adarsh panel over the issue recently.

Union Minister Deshmukh told the two-member commission that is investigating the Adarsh Housing Society scam that he signed the files related to the Adarsh Housing Society after the state's Revenue department and Finance Ministry cleared them.

Shinde reportedly told the commission during his deposition that all decisions in connection to the controversial housing society was taken during the tenure of Deshmukh as the Chief Minister of the state.

He reportedly said former Revenue Minister Ashok Chavan and Finance Minister Jayant Patil gave clearance to the files connected to the housing society before it came to his table for approval.

Chavan has been named in a chargesheet in the scam filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on July 4.

Chavan, however, said the chargesheet filed by the CBI in connection with the Adarsh Housing society scam is a conspiracy hatched by political opponents to keep him out of public life.

The CBI has filed a 10,000-page chargesheet nearly two years after the scandal came to fore.

Chavan had to resign in after he became one of the 14 people accused in the First Information Report (FIR) connected to the scam last year.

The 30-storey apartment building Adarsh Housing Society, where many top level defence officials live, was built on a disputed army land at Colaba and it is alleged that the flats meant for the families of the Kargil martyrs were allotted to top defence officials and kins of politicians.
