NCP backs Rahul on reconsideration of Adarsh report

The NCP on Monday backed Rahul Gandhi’s pitch for reconsideration of Maharashtra government’s decision rejecting a judicial panel’s report on Adarsh scam which had indicted some senior Congress leaders, including former chief ministers.

‘We will support any decision to review the state cabinet’s decision. The decision to reject the report was apparently taken in a haste... It was not proper to reject the commission’s report. There is a need to review it,’ NCP MP and senior party leader Tariq Anwar said.  Congress president Sonia Gandhi had on Saturday indicated that the Maharashtra government would reconsider its decision to reject a judicial commission’s report on Adarsh housing scam, a day after Rahul Gandhi ticked off the state government over the issue.

Disapproving of the Maharashtra government’s decision to reject the report, Rahul Gandhi had said on Friday, ‘Personally, I don’t agree with that decision. They (Maharashtra) should reconsider that’.
The very next day when asked about the rejection of the Adarsh scam report by the Maharashtra Cabinet, Sonia Gandhi had said, ‘That has been decided....and I think it is going to be resolved.’

Noting that the Congress high command has instructed its leaderhip in the state to review the decision, the NCP leader said that ‘it’s a right decision (to review the report). The line taken by the Congress Vice President is very correct that it should be reconsidered.’
