‘Will table Adarsh probe report in assembly’

The Maharashtra government on Tuesday informed the Bombay high court that it would table the Adarsh inquiry commission report during the ongoing winter assembly session. Assistant government pleader GW Mattos told a division bench of justices VM Kanade and MS Sonak that the report would be tabled during the assembly session in Nagpur.

The bench was hearing a petition filed by Maharashtra BJP unit seeking a direction to the government to table the report before the Legislature. The government had on Monday sought dismissal of the petition on the ground that under section 3(4) of the Commission of Inquiry Act, it is not mandatory on the state government to table the report. The court had, however, refused to accept the argument and said it would consider the issue of whether or not it was mandatory later, but the government should first at least indicate if it was going to table the report in the winter session. Following the government’s statement on Tuesday that the report would be tabled, the high court disposed of the BJP’s petition.
