"Tiwari had submitted leave application to the Governor, who is yet to take any decision on the matter," a Raj Bhavan spokesperson said.

Shiv Sena leader Subhash Desai has said that 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 member of the State Human Rights Commission in the backdrop of his alleged link in the scam.

Ashok Chavan was to forced to quit as Chief Minister in November last year after it was revealed that his kin including late mother-in-law, owned flats in the upscale Adarsh society.
