Maharashtra cabinet rejects Adarsh commission report
Nagpur, Dec 20: Maharashtra state cabinet rejected the inquiry report on Adarsh Housing Society tabled on the last day of the Winter Session of the state legislature in Nagpur today. The opposition walked out of the House, demanding a discussion in the assembly on Kargil For Profit scam.

"We have to submit the report during the ongoing session as per the high court directive," Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan had said. Opposition hit out at the government saying the cabinet is running away from Kargil for Profit scam. 

Reportedly, the report primarily incriminated bureuaucrats and while it hinted at the involvement of past chief ministers, it absolved them of any guilt.

"The commission has recorded violation of rules by several senior bureaucrats and involvement of former chief ministers Sushil Kumar Shinde, Ashok Chavan and the late Vilasrao Deshmukh without giving a verdict of wrongdoing by them," an Indian Express report quoted an official.

Ashok Chavan, former chief minister, who had to resign from the post after the Adarsh scam surfaced, was among the 12 who were charge sheeted by the agency in connection with the case.

Interestingly, Devyani Khobragade, the diplomat who is at the centre of a diplomatic row between India and US, owns a flat in Adarsh society.
