Mumbai:  Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has written to Prithviraj Chavan and the state Chief Secretary, claiming that the Adarsh inquiry Commission report does not do him justice and is against the principles of natural justice.

Sources close to Ashok Chavan said that in the letter, he has objected to the Commission reneging on its assurance to hear his side of the story.

“The report is bad and great injustice has been done to me. Before indicting me, the Commission did not hear my contention. This, despite it being specifically brought to its notice that if it was passing strictures against me, then as per section 8 of the Commissions Of Inquiry Act, I should have been heard,” the sources quoted Ashok Chavan as saying in the letter to the Chief Minister and Chief Secretary J S Saharia.
 
“The concerned were aware that as per the Act, if the reputation of a person is likely to be prejudicially affected by an inquiry, the commission shall give him a reasonable opportunity of being heard and produce evidence in his defence,” the sources said.

“The government will take note of the letter. It has also received representations from a section of bureaucrats indicted by the inquiry Commission,” a Mantralaya official said.
