Maharashtra partially accepts Adarsh probe report

Mumbai, Jan 2 : The Maharashtra cabinet Thursday partially accepted the report on probe into the Adarsh Housing Society scam after rejecting it a fortnight ago.


Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan told media persons that the government will initiate action against 25 members who were "ineligible" and also prosecute those owning property by proxy in the society.

However, there will be no action against officials and politicians named in the report, Chavan said.

"Since the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has already begun action against various officials, the government will not initiate separate proceedings against the same people," Chavan said.

The cabinet review of the probe commission report came a fortnight after it was rejected by the cabinet.

That had led to criticism from all quarters, including Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi.

Opposition parties in the state, including the Bharatiya Janata Party, termed the review as an eyewash and threatened to move court in the matter.
