Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, who is under fire for his role in the Adarsh housing society scam, found an unlikely ally in Raj Thackeray on Wednesday.
The Maharashtra Navni-rman Sena (MNS) chief criticised the media for highlighting the issue.
“Only a section of the media wants Ashok Chavan to go and this is not a valid reason,” said Raj. “Chavan should go if he is really involved in the scam.”
Raj described the media campaign on Adarsh confusing. “It is really difficult to understand the whole issue is,” he added.
The MNS chief also demanded action against bureaucrats involved in the scam. “It is unfortunate that bureaucrats only get transferred. Action should be taken against them as well,” said Raj.
In the last few days, the Colaba-based Adarsh housing society has been under fire for various violations. New revelations have been coming in daily in the media, proving it to be a great embarrassment for the Congress party.
Things have reached such an extent that Chief Minister Chavan has offered his resignation to the party high command.
