Jaipur, May 9 (UNI) AICC General Secretary and former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot today demanded a CBI probe into the controversial land deals during the four-and-a-half year BJP regime in the state.
Talking to reporters here today Mr Gehlot also stressed the need of a CBI inquiry into alleged multi crore scam in implementation of National Horticulture Mission in the state.
Mr Gehlot said the state government's reported move of action against Rajasthan Housing Board Chairman Ajaipal Singh's firms and other land mafia had exposed corruption and irregularities in land deals effected by this government.
He said "the state government's move has itself brought before the people corrupt face of the BJP Government as several prominent persons and Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's close confidentes have been themselves working as land mafia".
Over the reported scam in implementation of Horticulture Mission, Mr Gehlot said it was a serious situation that an officer of Secretary level was pointing out scam and the government had done nothing but to entrust the probe to a ruling BJP leader.
The former Chief Minister said the Chief Minister should order a CBI inquiry into all the scams and deals.
He said the people of the state were watching "all the drama being staged by this government" and they would teach the BJP a lesson in the assembly elections to be held in November.
