New Delhi: Congress Tuesday said a decision on
the fate of Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan`s will be
taken after November 8 amid indications that his resignation
could be accepted.

"A decision will be taken after November 8. We do not want
to spoil anyone`s Diwali," highly placed Congress sources said
after the conclusion of the AICC meeting.

Chavan had offered to resign from his post after his name
came up in the Adarsh Housing Society scam.

At the meeting, Chavan was seated on the dais along with
top Congress leadership as also Maharashtra PCC president
Manikrao Thakre who is embroiled in another controversy on
collection of funds for Sonia Gandhi`s rally in Wardha.

Heavy Industries Minister and former Maharashtra Chief
Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, a known detractor of Chavan, was
also on the dais during the session.

The Congress leadership made no reference to the housing
scam or the Commonwealth Games scam during the AICC session.

CWG Organising Committee chairperson Suresh Kalmadi and
Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, who have traded charges
against each other on the Games scam, were also present at
the session.
