AAP supports Fadnavis in probe against NCP leaders

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which played a major role in unearthing the irrigation scam, on Saturday welcomed the probe against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leaders Ajit Pawar and Sunil Tatkare.

“The AAP played a pivotal role in unearthing the irrigation scam. The party has always been in the forefront in the fight to nail the culprits. While welcoming Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s stand on this issue, the party feels the government needs to clarify its stand on certain related aspects,” an AAP spokesperson said. According to the AAP, the government needs to take a clear as well as stringent stance on the Madhav Chitale committee report about corruption in Vidharbha Irrigation development Corporation (VIDC) and Konkan Irrigation Development Corporation (KIDC).

“The AAP has already filed two PILs in the Bombay High Court. The AAP also strongly feels that this inquiry should be handed over to a High Court monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT),” the AAP spokesperson added.

It pointed out that the Maharashtra government has till date not submitted an affidavit on the action already taken by it as well as action that it intends to take on the findings of the Chitale committee report.

“Even in the new government, it seems a few ministers are trying to obtain government sanction for few projects in absolute haste,” he said.
