Congress Saturday steered clear of the blame game going on among three of its former chief ministers from Maharashtra over the Adarsh housing scam saying the party did not comment on matters that were sub-judice.

"A commission of inquiry is on. The matter is sub-judice. We do not comment on matters which are sub-judice", party spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters when asked to comment on three former Maharashtra CMs blaming each other for the scam.

Former chief minister Ashok Chavan had Friday pointed a finger at his predecessor Vilasrao Deshmukh, saying as revenue minister during the latter's tenure it was beyond his jurisdiction to allot land to the society.

Deshmukh had blamed Chavan for the land allotment while Sushilkumar Shinde had blamed Deshmukh.

Deshmukh, during his stint as chief minister had issued letter of intent (LOI) in favour of allotting land to the Adarsh society.
