"Tiwari had sought leave from January 7 to March 31. The Governor has not granted leave to him," a Raj Bhavan spokesperson said.

Shiv Sena leader Subhash Desai has said the government should sack Tiwari, a former IAS officer, for his alleged involvement in the Adarsh scam.

On January 3, another former bureaucrat, Subhash Lalla resigned as a member of the State Human Rights Commission in the backdrop of his alleged link to the scam. Ashok Chavan was forced to quit as Chief Minister in November last year after it was revealed that his relatives, including his late mother-in-law, owned flats in the upscale Adarsh society.
