we have given details of this mega land scam to UPA chief Smt.Sonia Gandhiji and Finace Minsiter Pranav Mukharji and here are details
Mahrashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has ordered under section of 11(2) of the MMDR Act, 1957 to grant Mining Lease for Lime Stone to M/s.Reliance Cementation Pvt.Ltd., Navi Murrbai over an area of 1008.33 H/R situated at Mauza Chanakha, Nimdeli, Gubri and Karegaon, Taluka Kelapur, District Yeotmal on 25th august 2009 just before the code of conduct is imposed by Election Commission of India .
Earlier VJAS in letter to Lokaukatta made series of allegation to claim the decision to grant the mining lease was malafide and ill managed as while giving the order Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan but all complaints were shown dustbin
Observations are :-
VJAS has urged Smt Sonia Gandhi to look in to all aspects of givng order to M/s.Reliance Cementation Pvt.Ltd., Navi Murrbai as giving mining lease of 1000 hector land where as requirement of land has to be viewed seriously and amount of lease to be recovered from the M/s.Reliance Cementation Pvt.Ltd., Navi Murrbai is almost free hence reasons given for rejection of other parties are not convincing more over the decision before the election is creating lot scope for smelling the corruption as this chief minister has granted lot lease in such manner which are also matter of investigation ,Tiwari added.
“we want sentiments of all farmers and tribal should be considered and high-command should also look in to such massive deep rooted corruption and mega land scam in the name of development” Tiwari said.
