Adarsh Scam: Main Goal of Politicians and Military to Cheat and defraud the System

Secretary of Adarsh Society R C Thakur among other accused had allegedly misled the Maharashtra government in 2002 in allotting a plot for the construction of the highrise, claiming that the local defence authorities had given the go-ahead. This has been revealed by the CBI in its over 10,000-page chargesheet filed on July 4 against 13 accused in the case. The special CBI judge will start taking cognisance of the chargesheet on July 24.
As per the synopsis of the document, Thakur had requested the then Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh on May 21, 2000, to allot land in South Mumbai claiming that the defence authorities had granted permission for the residential tower, provided the society constructs a girls hostel for the children of Army officers serving in far-flung areas.
“In the said letter, it was falsely represented that the accused, including Thakur, had negotiated with the local military officials and got a green signal, provided a girls hostel is constructed for children of Army officers serving in far-flung areas," the charge sheet said.
Thakur in a February 2000 letter to the government had mentioned about the girls hostel.
The CBI said that the Chief Minister then forwarded Thakur's letter to the revenue department, which, on the basis of the letter, initiated the process of conducting a survey of the plot which could be allotted to the society.
The chargesheet also says that chief promoter and former Congress MLC Kanhaiyalal Gidwani played an “important role” in expediting the process for getting the allotment done.
Gidwani had written several letters to the CMO and other departments claiming that the flats would be constructed for the welfare of Army personnel. Maha govt misled in allotting plot for Adarsh: CBI
Comment: Why are the former Military Chiefs not prosecuted for acquiring houses as members of Adarsh Society? The Military and MOD need to be ruthless in getting after the most corrupt in the system. If it is not done the morale of troops and veterans are likely to be adversely effected. Where is the Girls Hostel for the Children of Jawans serving in far flung areas.?
