No govt affidavit in HC on Adarsh report tabling

Nagpur News: The Maharashtra government has not filed any affidavit in the High Court on the tabling of the Adarsh inquiry commission report in the state Legislative Assembly, Chief Minister Prithiviraj Chavan said in a letter to Speaker Dilip Walse Patil on Thursday.

Raising the issue during adjournment motion, BJP’s Devendra Fhadnavis said the state government had assured the High Court, during the hearing of a writ petition filed by BJP leaders, that the said report will be tabled in the Assembly during the ongoing winter session.

Fhadanvis demanded that the Speaker should direct the government to table the report this week so that the Opposition gets sufficient time and opportunity to discuss it in the House.

If the government tables the report next week, there will be no time left to discuss it he said.

At this juncture, the Speaker read out a letter from Chief Minister saying the High Court during its hearing wanted to know when the report will be tabled, to which state government assured orally and not through an affidavit, that it will be done during the current session.
