Jaipur, Nov 14 (UNI) Rajasthan Welfare Minister Madan Dilawar today said all allegations of corruption and amassing properties against him were ''false and baseless''.

Addressing a press conference here, Mr Dilawar, who symbolises ''dissident'' in the BJP state politics, said those who were indulged in false propoganda against him for the past over one year themselves appeared to be ''corrupt and characterless.'' Sensing the seriousness of conspiracy against him, he had, about a year ago, written to Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, BJP President Rajnath Singh, state President Mahesh Sharma, then Congress state President BD Kalla and then Leader of the Opposition in the Rajasthan Assembly Ram Narain Chaudhary to intervene for holding of fair probe into the allegations.

Mr Dilawar said although these leaders had not found a prima facie case for probe against him, he himself had obtained reports and comments of district collectors, tehsildars and other officials concerned about his assets and properties and the officials had given a clean chit to him and his family.

''I want to make public affirmation that all allegations and propaganda against me are false and baseless and I and my family do not own any properties and assets other than those which was declared by me in my nomination papers.'' He said he had so far earned around Rs 34 lakh from the government as salary, allowances as an MLA or member of the Council of Ministers and the properties and assets owned by him were absolutely proporationate to his income.

The state minister said he was trying to identify his adversaries and would take appropriate action on their due identification.

Mr Dilawar symbolises dissident leaders in the state BJP politics.

He is among those leaders who had participated in the closed door meeting with Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Jaswant Singh, during a socio-religious ceremony at the latter's native village Jassol in Barmer district recently.
