New Delhi: Congress on Monday played down reports of blame game among its Maharashtra leaders, including former chief ministers, on Adarsh housing scam.

"No chief minister has levelled any allegation against the other. Every CM is simply verifying his position which is being interpreted by people as blame game," party spokesperson Rashid Alvi told reporters here, refusing to comment further on the issue, being probed by a Commission of Inquiry and CBI.

"I will not comment on any issue which is being probed by a court, a commission or an investigation agency unless a final decision is taken," he said.

Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan had last week pointed fingers at his predecessor Vilasrao Deshmukh, saying as revenue minister during the latter`s tenure it was beyond his jurisdiction to allot land to the society.

Deshmukh had blamed Chavan for the land allotment, while Sushilkumar Shinde, another former CM, had blamed Deshmukh, who during his stint as chief minister had issued Letter of Intent in favour of allotting land to Adarsh housing society.
