In the Adarash housing scam, the CBI had sought sanction for prosecution of former CM Ashok Chavan under Section 197 CrPc on the basis of fresh material.
The Adarsh Commission report which was partially accepted by the government in December 2014, has indicted several top bureaucrats, politicians and defense persons.
The CBI, which had earlier filed pleas to drop Chavan’s name citing lack of evidence, has now filed a fresh plea for permission to prosecute him.
In such a scenario, Chavan asked the government to pay the difference directly to the farmer’s account.
Claiming that the party was not worried about the rise of AIMIM as a political force, he said AIMIM was being used by the BJP.
Ashok Chavan claimed that in view of the “unstable” political situation, the government could fall any time.
Former CM allegedly helped the Dardas regularise land that was ‘encroached’ upon in Yavatmal.
“My strategy is not to have any pre-poll alliance. If necessary, we can consider post-poll alliances,” said Chavan.
While BJP did not field a candidate in Sena’s support, NCP and MNS too decided against contesting the bypoll.
Chavan was talking to mediapersons after his first visit to the city upon assuming charge as state party unit chief.
The court added a lot of time had already been spent during the pendency of the application.
Even before taking over, the new Maharashtra PCC chief mounts offensive against Fadnavis govt, also takes on Shiv Sena.
History luckily does not repeat itself. Not exactly anyway.
While the elected MLAs favour former chief minister Ashok Chavan, AICC is worried if Adarsh case is pursued it would affect organisation.
Chavan was among the 13 people charge sheeted by CBI in the Adarsh scam in July 2012.
