Maharashtra Energy Minister Ajit Pawar on Sunday denied any involvement in the Adarsh Housing Society scam and said he has not recommended anyone's name for the membership in the society.

"Show me even one person who is either a relative or someone I know who is a member of the society," Pawar, nephew of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, said. "I have not recommended anyone's name for membership," the minister said.

Union Power Minister Sushilkumar Shinde, whose name is doing rounds as among Ashok Chavan's likely successors as Chief Minister, today said "nothing much was happening in Delhi on the Adarsh front."

"Nothing much is happening. It is only the newspapers who are making a hue and cry," Shinde said on arrival here this afternoon. Revenue minister Narayan Rane also refuted reports that he had anything to do in allocation of a flat to a member of the society considered close to him.
