Adarsh scam accused files nomination
Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, accused in the Adarsh scam case, on Wednesday filed his nomination from the Nanded seat in Maharashtra.
The Congress on Tuesday gave him a ticket to contest the Lok Sabha elections from Nanded.
"The party has taken a decision to give me a ticket after due consideration. Nothing has been proved against me. I am legally allowed to stand for the elections," Chavan told CNN-IBN.
Adarsh, the 30-storey apartment building, housing many top level defence officials, was built on a disputed army land at Colaba in Mumbai and it was alleged that the flats meant for the families of the Kargil martyrs were allotted to top defence officials and kins of politicians.
