‘Haven’t got file seeking inquiry against Bhujbal’

Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan said he had not received any file regarding allegations against PWD minister Chhagan Bhujbal from the Home Department seeking permission for an "open inquiry". He said he had made remarks based on media reports regarding permission given by the department.

Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau wrote to the Home Department seeking permission to conduct an open inquiry over allegations made by BJP leader Kirit Somaiya. Somaiya had alleged fraud by firms owned by Bhujbal associates in getting contracts to build the new Maharashtra Sadan building in New Delhi.

He added that he had received the same complaint from Somaiya and a copy was forwarded by the Governor as well. He had sent those files to the chief secretary for further inquiry. "I have not received any such file," said Chavan.
