Chavan back home, Pranab says panel needs time


Staff member
The Congress party panel set up to go into the Adarsh housing scam needed some time to examine the documents, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said Monday as Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan returned home to Mumbai.

"We will require some time to study the documents. After that we will be in a position to report to the Congress president [Sonia Gandhi]," Mukherjee said after meeting Gandhi along with Defence Minister A.K. Antony, the second member of the party panel.

Mukherjee said the meeting at Gandhi's 10 Janpath residence was "only related to the All India Congress Committee (AICC) special session to be held here [today]".

Chavan, who last week offered to resign over the housing society scam and was camping in New Delhi since Friday, left for Mumbai on Monday morning and no decision on his fate or alleged role likely soon, Congress sources said. Chavan had a 45-minute meeting with Gandhi on Saturday during which he explained the situation and offered to resign.


on off on off......
the whole congress is chor party..many congress leaders involved in this land scam..The land on which the 31-storey building in posh Colaba was said to have been meant for Kargil war heroes and widows. And this CM Chavan had been involved in clearing papers for the upscale high-rise Adarsh building project in his previous capacity as the Revenue minister.

Till now not even solved that 70000 crore CWG(common wealth game) scam done by congress leaders...a new scam came in front..wooo jai ho congress ki lol
well when come to know that he is getting caught in this scam...he running from the post...ahh same old congress leaders tactics to hide....but i think this Maharashtra CM is little ok as compare to other congress leaders in Maharashtra..if he goes then who will be next cm ??? as congress dont have any good leaders left...
Congress is using name of Mahatma Gandhi to collect votes. But you will hardly find any minister , who lives in simplicity like Mahatma Gandhi lived. Almost many ministers have made fortunes, by using names of their relatives.No body will get punishment, maximum only they will leave chair, after making money for them and their families, which is sufficient money for almost 100 generations.
