Law to take own course in land allotment case: Con
New Delhi: Congress on Friday said law will take
its own course in the wake of the Bombay High Court judgement in the land allotment case in Mumbai allegedly involving Union Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh.
Party spokesperson Renuka Chowdhury told reporters that law is universally applicable to all, but noted that in one para of the judgement, it has been said that there was no personal gain for Deshmukh, who was the chief minister at that
time. "We will see the judgement," she said.
The High Court has asked film maker Subhah Ghai to return
to Maharashtra government the 20-acre land allotted for his
film institute, making a scathing indictment of Deshmukh for
"misusing his official position" as chief minister in showing
The court, however, said there is no need for a CBI probe
in the land deal since there was no material to indicate that
its sale at reduced prices was a quid pro quo to get the then
chief minister`s actor son (Riteish Deshmukh) established in
the film industry.
