Leaders of key Opposition parties in Maharashtra on Monday met Governor K Sankaranarayanan here,seeking the dismissal of the Ashok Chavan government over the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society scam.
“We demand the immediate removal of the Chavan ministry and pointed out to the Governor that the image of the state government and that of the state have taken a beating due to the blatant corruption of those involved in the scam,” senior Sena leader Diwakar Raote said.
Those who met the Governor included BJP leader Vinod Tawde and Sena leaders Subhash Desai and Deepak Sawant.
The delegation asked the Governor to initiate criminal proceedings against ministers and bureaucrats whose names figure in the scam.
A controversy has erupted over how Adarsh Housing Society,originally meant to be a six-storeyed structure to house Kargil war heroes and widows,got converted into a 31-storeyed tower through the collusion of bureaucrats,politicians and top defence officers.
