New Delhi: Two days after Ajit Pawar was sworn-in as Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra, nine irrigation scam cases were closed.

''None were related to Ajit Pawar,'' said Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) DG Parambir Singh.

 

Maharashtra Anti Corruption Bureau Sources add that the cases that were closed today were conditional, cases could reopen if more information comes to light or courts order further inquiry.

The scam with the reported involvement of around Rs 70,000 crore, relates to alleged corruption and irregularities in approval and execution of various irrigation projects in Maharashtra during the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) rule.
