Adarsh scam not a big deal: Sharad Pawar
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar on Friday said the Adarsh housing scam was not a big deal and that Congress leader and former Maharashtra chief minister Ashok Chavan should be given a clean chit.
"I don't think Adarsh scam is a big deal. We should analyse the detailed report about the involvement of Ashok Chavan. The only allegation against him is that one of the flats was given to his close relative. I wouldn't call this a scam," Pawar told CNN-IBN.
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.
