Adarsh Society land is assets of defence ministry: Antony
Union Defence Minister A.K.Antony has said that the land on which controversial Adarsh Society stands is belongs to defence ministry and it has nothing to do with Maharashtra governement's, which claim that it is state property. Actually it was in the possession of the defence ministry. Antony asserted the facts when he was addressing to media during a defence function organized here.
Addressing to media, Antony said, "There is our possession on the land and we have conveyed this to the commission." Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had every right to investigate the Adarsh Society case, he added.
It is noted that his comments has came in response to queries on the Adarsh Society scam and last week's deposition by former army chief General Deepak Kapoor, who claimed he was not aware the building, which overlooks the sensitive naval establishment, could have posed a security risk.
It is noted that the state government had challenged in the Bombay High Court the CBI's jurisdiction on investigating the Adarsh Society case on grounds that neither the state government nor the court has handed the matter to it (CBI) for a probe.
