Mumbai: A delegation of the Opposition
parties in Maharashtra on Monday met Governor K Sankarnarayanan
demanding dismissal of the Ashok Chavan government in the
state over the Adarsh Society scam, besides seeking enquiry of
politicians and bureaucrats involved in it.

"We demanded that the corrupt Congress-NCP government be
dismissed and also an enquiry be conducted of bureaucrats
involved in the scam," Leader of Opposition in Legislative
Assembly Eknath Khadse told reporters here.

Recalling the 26/11 terror attacks in which bureaucrats
were saved from any enquiry, Khadse emphasised on initiating
action against them this time.

He said the Opposition leaders have also asked the
Governor that the role of present and former chief ministers
be probed in the scam.

Khadse was accompanied by Shiv Sena leader Subhash Desai,
Diwakar Raote, BJP leader Sudhir Mungantiwar and Vinod Tawade.

Some government officials are also members of the housing
society and allegedly gave various approvals for the project.

"Why the MMRDA issued the Occupational Certificate (OC)
to the Society when it was BMC`s prerogative to grant it,"
Sena leader Subhash Desai said.

The meeting went on for 20 minutes. The Governor assured
them to look into the matter, a leader from the delegation
said.
