Chavan hints at tabling Adarsh panel report

Maharashtra CM Prithviraj Chavan on Sunday hinted at the possibility of tabling the Adarsh panel report during the monsoon session of the Assembly.

Maharashtra CM Prithviraj Chavan on Sunday hinted at the possibility of tabling the Adarsh panel report during the monsoon session of the Assembly.

“The report will be tabled at an appropriate time. As per the rules of the Commission of Enquiry,the report has to be tabled in front of the Assembly,” Chavan said while addressing a press conference in Mumbai. Asked what he meant by “appropriate time”,the CM hinted that it could be during the session.

The two-member commission of retired HC judge Justice J A Patil and former chief secretary P Subrahmanium was set up in January 2011 to probe the Adarsh scam with reference to specific issues,such as land ownership,reservation of the plot,town planning and coastal violations and the role of public servants.

The commission is now hearing evidence for the remaining 11 references,including coastal violations and the role of public servants.

The CM,meanwhile,said the state was planning to table a total of 12 Bills during the present session. The most important is the anti-superstition Bill that is being opposed by a section of the society,including the Warkari community who have threatened to launch agitation against it.

The CM said the government would not take any decision on the passage of the Bill until he has assuaged the doubts of people opposing the Bill.

“I have told the Warkaris that no decision on the Bill would be taken without consulting them,” said Chavan. He also requested the Opposition to help in clearing several legislations that he said were important for the development of the state. The combined Opposition has stated that it was unlikely to cooperate with the state government during the ongoing session.

“I would like to request members to ensure that all the Bills,which will ensure the development of the state,are cleared,” said Chavan.
