Mumbai: Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav
Thackeray on Saturday demanded strict action against all those
involved in the Adarsh housing scam.

When asked about media reports that mother-in-law of
former Chief Minister, Ashok Chavan, had taken a loan from a
senior police officer`s father, and Chavan allotted him a flat
in Adarsh in return, Thackeray junior said that not just
Chavan, but everybody involved should be punished.
FIR filed by CBI in the case names Ashok Chavan.

But the Bombay High Court earlier this week directed the
CBI to look into allegations of involvement of Union ministers
Vilasrao Deshmukh and Sushil Kumar Shinde too, observing that
law was "equal" for all.

Earlier, a 200-page photography-book by Uddhav -- who is
an avid photographer -- which showcases aerial photographs of
the Pandharpur Wari (pilgrimage) was released by his father,
Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray at the function.
In a rare public appearance, Bal Thackeray said that he
prayed to Lord Vitthal -- of Pandharpur -- to give strength
and power to Shiv Sainiks to overthrow the corrupt ministers
and change to prevailing chaotic condition in the country.

Without naming Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar,
Thackeray said that he too was from Pune, but never spoke in
disparaging manner to anybody.
