UNION HEAVY INDUSTRIES MINISTER BLAMES THE MEDIA FOR USING THE WORD SCAM TOO LIGHTLY; EVADES ANSWERING ALLEGATIONS OF SNATCHING LAND MEANT FOR DUMB AND DEAF SCHOOL

vilasrao-scamUnion Heavy Industries Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh was in the city to inaugurate a private hospital. He was accompanied by his wife and son MLA Amit Deshmukh. When the media questioned Vilasrao Deshmukh about the scams after scams involving senior Congress leaders coming to the forefront, Vilasrao Deshmukh blamed the media for using the word scam too lightly and not doing their research properly. If the allegations on Ashok Chavan were of snatching the rights of war widows, then the allegations against Vilasrao Deshmukh are equally bad if not worse. The Sr. Congress leader and Union Heavy Industries Minister has come in the eye of the storm of gobbling up land meant for school for dumb and deaf children and Latur and using the plot for commercial purpose of a bank of which his son MLA AMit Deshmukh is the Chairman. A PIL has been filed against the Deshmukhs for this illegal land grab and the Bombay high court has issued notices to Union Heavy Industries Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh and his son MLA Amit Deshmukh while hearing a petition. The PIL alleges that they have misappropriated land in a prime commercial locality of Latur which was meant for a deaf and dumb school. Vilasrao Deshmukh hails from Latur. The petition states that a land of 5,130 square feet was allotted to Deshmukhs trust Jeevan Vikas Pratisthan and the GR of the town planning department was also changed when Vilasrao Deshmukh was the Chief Minister to permit commercial use of the plot. Today the plot meant for school for dumb and deaf children has the Vikas Cooperative Bank, of which MLA Amit Deshmukh is the Chairman. The petitioner has demanded a CBI enquiry. During his recent visit to Navi Mumbai, Vilasrao Deshmukh evaded all questions related to this land grab. He said that whatever justification he has to give about the said plot, he will give it only to the High Court. He went on to blame the media for using the word “scam” too lightly. He even went on to advise the media that they should first do research and then make allegations of corruption and scam. And when the media asked him about the allegations of Ashok Chavan that his own party colleague had given supari against Chavan, Deshmukh chose to feign ignorance. The name of so many Congress leaders coming up in scams like these is spelling shame and embarrassment for the party. However, Vilasrao Deshmukh does not seem perturbed about this aspect either. Sources reveal that the manner in which Sr. Congress leaders in Maharashtra are snatching the rights to amenities of war widows and handicap children has really become a matter of shame and embarrassment for the Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and are a reflection of how ethics and moral values have stooped really low within the Congress party.
