Next Maha CM should be clean: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: With Ashok Chavan being forced to step down over the housing society scam in Mumbai, Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said the next Maharashtra Chief Minister should be a "clean" person who can "deliver".

"One who is capable and who can deliver," the Congress leader told reporters here when asked how does he expect the next Maharashtra Chief Minister to be.

Asked whether the new chief minister should have a clean record, he replied, "Of course".

After the resignation of the then incumbent Vilasrao Deshmukh in the wake of the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai, Gandhi had reportedly backed Chavan for the top post in the state.
