Jaipur: Accusing Ashok Gehlot Government of extending undue benefits to a private firm involved in construction of luxury apartments here, BJP on Tuesday demanded a thorough probe into the issue.

BJP Secretary Kirit Somaiya alleged that rules were flouted by government authorities for providing necessary permissions to the firm for the project and demanded that documents related to it be made public.

"The company was favoured by the government and rules were flouted. Permission to construct a residential project on a land meant for institutional use is one of the irregularities," he alleged.

"The land use, where the project is being constructed, is shown as institutional in Master plan 2025 but the approval for a residential project was given. The Jaipur Development Authority, in order to favour the firm, claimed that land use was erroneously marked as `Institutional use` in the Master plan," the BJP leader alleged.

He said the party will go to the Governor with a complaint to seek a thorough probe into the alleged land scam.
