New Delhi: Maharashtra Chief Minister
Ashok Chavan`s resignation has been accepted on the basis of
perception in the wake of the controversy over the Adarsh
Housing Society scam, senior Congress leader Pranab Mukherjee
indicated on Tuesday.

"I am not going to make a value judgement. It was not
a regular inquiry commission. Nothing like that. We went on
certain aspects. Political decisions are taken many times on
perception and based on certain facts," he told reporters.

His remarks came when asked if Chavan`s resignation
was the result of a joint probe by him and Defence Minister AK Antony into the matter.

To another question, he said, "Whatever has been done
considering all aspects, has been done. Therefore there is no
question whether it is right or wrong. Nobody does something
wrong deliberately. After due diligence, whatever has been
done has been done."

Chavan today became the first casualty of the Adarsh
scam in which several politicians, bureaucrats and former
services chiefs are allegedly involved.
