    CM tries to hide his face, evade questions on Adarsh report under cover of Vidarbha issues

    Chavan only curtly answered: “The land of Adarsh Society belongs to State Government. The flats in the Adarsh building were not reserved for Kargil conflict heroes. People-interested decisions are taken in the Cabinet,” the Chief Minister replied to a barrage of questions targeted by media at the press conference.

    The Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan “unsuccessfully” tried to hide his face and shield pointed questions on Adarsh Scam report under the cover of “crucial” Vidarbha development issue.

    Chavan only curtly answered: “The land of Adarsh Society belongs to State Government. The flats in the Adarsh building were not reserved for Kargil conflict heroes. People-interested decisions are taken in the Council of Ministers,” the Chief Minister replied to a barrage of questions targeted by media at the press conference Chavan was addressing after conclusion of Winter Session in Nagpur on Friday (December 20) at Patrakar Bhavan of Nagpur Union of Working Journalists (NUWJ).

    The media’s question blitz forced the Chief Minister go radio silent. “Whose interests/benefits were maintained in the Adarsh report?” “Who is being protected by the Government?” “Why no discussion was held on the Adarsh report in Vidhan Sabha and Vidhan Parishad?” “Why the report was tabled in the House at the last minute?” The Chief Minister did not reply to a single question but repeated the answer that only people-oriented decisions are taken in the Cabinet and it would not be appropriate to comment on the decisions taken in the Cabinet.

    The Chief Minister, after evading the replies on the Adarsh scam report, said that the “crucial” issues of Vidarbha were given priority in the Winter Session of Maharashtra Legislature. “Had the Opposition not put hurdles in the proceedings of the House, more time could have been given to resolving burning problems of Vidarbha. But for Government, the overall development of Vidarbha is more important. The Mihan project is gaining momentum.  A total of 28 MoUs were signed during “Advantage Vidarbha” Conference. Some projects have started functioning,” Chavan said.

    “Nagpur is emerging as hub of education and has National Fire Service College, new Law University, Triple IT. Similarly, CSIR University is being set up in the premises of NEERI which will honour the students, who carry out basic research, with degrees. The CSIR University will be started on the auspices of Council of Scientific Research Institute in NEERI premises,” said the Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan.

    Chavan further said, “Airports in Amravati and Akola are being upgraded. The new Textile Policy will also benefit Vidarbha immensely as Rs 126 crore are being invested in the State. The Rs 3000 crore relief package has already been announced for the rain-affected farmers,” the Chief Minister said.

    Those who were present at the press conference include EGS Minister Nitin Raut, Minister of State for Finance Rajendra Mulak, NUWJ President Brahma Tripathi, Shirish Borkar. Anupam Soni conducted the press conference.
