Army to probe Mumbai housing scam

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI/MUMBAI, Nov 1 � The political imbroglio in Maharashtra triggered by the housing scam showed no signs of an immediate resolution with Congress today appearing to be in no undue hurry to decide on the fate of its embattled Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, reports PTI.

Stung by the controversy over the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society in Mumbai, the Army is also all set to order a court of inquiry while the Defence Ministry plans to slap show cause notices against serving officers in connection with the scam.

As more skeletons tumbled out in the scam, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said some top floors of the 31-storeyed high-rise building might be demolished as they have been constructed in violation of the norms. Congress stuck to its position that it needed more time to study the documents in connection with the controversy which has sucked in Chavan, who seems to have got a breather after he offered to resign on Saturday.

After the two-member high-level Congress panel met party president Sonia Gandhi, Pranab Mukherjee said �Yesterday in the night I had said that we require more time to study the documents and report to the Congress President. That position continues.� Defence Minister A K Antony is another member.
