BJP wants special session to discuss Adarsh scam

Minutes after Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan’s press briefing on the Adarsh commission report got over, Leader of the Opposition in the Maharashtra Legislative Council, Vinod Tawde, demanded that a special session of the legislature be held to discuss the issue.

Tawde told reporters that he had already written to Governor K Sanakaranarayanan and the chief minister, seeking a special session, “as the state cabinet has no right to discuss the matter”.

Tawde said as the report was tabled in the legislature during the winter session in Nagpur, “it is now a property of the state legislature and any decision that needs to be taken on the report should be taken in the legislature.”

On Wednesday, Bharatiya Janata Party’s Kirit Somaiya filed an application with the Marine Drive police station, asking them to register a criminal case against conspirators in the Adarsh scam.

In order to substantiate his allegations, Somaiya submitted documents charging former chief minister Ashok Chavan, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde and others named by the Central Bureau of Investigation in its charge-sheet.

Somiaya said he would be moving the court if the police failed to register a complaint. Marine Drive police station inspector Rajendra Patil told mediapersons that the matter needed to be examined legally.
