Expressing unhappiness over the Adarsh housing society scam probe and subsequent indictment of bureaucrats in the judicial commission report, an indicted officer has written to the Maharashtra government over the issue.
“I have written a letter to the Maharashtra government. Some other officers who have been indicted have also written letters. I cannot reveal contents of the letter,” the officer said, adding that he wrote the letter two-three days ago.
Confirming that he received the letter, chief secretary JS Saharia said some bureaucrats named in the report have also written to the government.
“I cannot reveal what is in the letter. We will examine the letter,” Saharia said. Asked if the matter would be taken up with Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, he replied in the affirmative. The report of the two-member commission headed by retired high court judge JA Patil has indicted several politicians, including three former chief ministers, for “blatant violations” of statutory provisions in the Adarsh housing project. On December 20, the Maharashtra government had rejected the report.
