Jaipur, May 11 (UNI) Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje today turned down her predecessor and AICC General Secretary Ashok Gehlot's demand of a CBI inquiry into the ''controversial land deals'' executed during her four-and-a-half-year regime.
Talking to reporters here today Ms Raje ridiculed the demand and said the Congress leader had no moral right to raise such a demand.
She also said, ''How can they raise such a demand? All of us know what they did during their regime?'' The Chief Minister added that what her government was doing was perfectly all right.
Ms Raje said the government had been taken the right course of action by undertaking the screening and review of certain deals and action against the land mafia.
BJP General Secretary Gopinath Munde and state party President Om Prakash Mathur also gave clean chit to the state government and held that there was no need of a CBI probe into the land deals.
They also said that the government was not involved in any scam.
The state government had recently initiated action against the real estate firms owned by Rajasthan Housing Board Chairman Ajaipal Singh's family and some other influential people known to be close confidentes to the Chief Minister.
Reacting on the move, AICC General Secretary and former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had alleged that a number of land scams had taken place during Ms Raje's four and a half year regime.
Talking to reporters two days ago, Mr Gehlot had said that the state government's reported move of action against Mr Ajaipal Singh's firms and other land Mafias had exposed the corruption and irregularities in land deals effected by this government.
