Union Minister Milind Deora today today disagreed with Maharashtra government's rejection of the judicial commission of inquiry report on Adarsh Housing scam which indicted several politicians including three former Chief Ministers for "blatant violations".

"If the Adarsh Committee report raises questions, we should investigate, answer them & not be hush!," Deora tweeted.

A political controversy has erupted over the decision of the Congress-NCP government to reject the report which said Adarsh society enjoyed political patronage of former Chief Ministers, Vilasrao Deshmukh, Sushilkumar Shinde and Ashok Chavan, former Revenue Minister Shivajirao Nlengekar Patil, former Minister for Urban Development Sunil Tatkare and former Minister of Urban Development Rajesh Tope.

Deora's remarks are significant as the issue had given the opposition an ammunition to attack Congress over the issue of corruption.

The Union Minister had earlier tweeted against the government's decision to bring an Ordinance on convicted lawmakers, which was finally withdrawn after Rahul Gandhi had publicly trashed it.

Deora's remarks were then seen as having made with the consent of the party high command as the young minister is stated to be close to Rahul Gandhi.

"Legalities aside, allowing convicted MPs/MLAs 2 retain seats in the midst of an appeal can endanger already eroding public faith in democracy," Deora had then commented on the microblogging site Twitter.

Soon after Rahul Gandhi had attacked the Ordiance moved by the Centre on negating the Supreme Court verdict on lawmakers and termed it as "complete nonsense" and one that should be "torn and thrown away", the legal measure was withdrawn.
