‘Eyewash’: Fadnavis on panel formed to probe charges against Deshmukh

The Maha Vikas Aghadi-led government on Tuesday appointed a panel comprising retired Bombay High Court judge Kailas Chandiwal to probe the charges against Deshmukh, levelled by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh.

Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday criticised the Maharashtra government’s decision to appoint a single-member committee to probe the corruption allegations against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and the state’s home minister Anil Deshmukh.

The Maha Vikas Aghadi-led government on Tuesday appointed a panel comprising retired Bombay High Court judge Kailas Chandiwal to probe the charges against Deshmukh, levelled by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh.

Fadnavis, the leader of opposition in Maharashtra, tweeted that the constitution of the Chandiwal committee is “just of committee nature and not as a judicial commission”. He also questioned how a retired judge, without any powers, will enquire against a sitting home minister. “We are of the view that appointing such a committee is merely an eyewash and does not solve any purpose, looking at the gravity and severity of the allegations,” the former chief minister wrote on the microblogging site.
