New Delhi [India], March 22 (ANI): Rajya Sabha was on Monday adjourned till 2 PM following an uproar in the House over alleged corruption charges on Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.
Several leaders in the House, including Union Minister Prakash Javadekar, raised the recent corruption allegations against the Maharashtra Home Minister.
Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh on Saturday wrote a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray alleging that Deshmukh had indulged in "malpractices" and asked suspended API Sachin Waze to collect Rs 100 crore every month.
The allegations made by Singh came a day after Deshmukh had said that Singh was moved out as Mumbai Police Commissioner so that cases pertaining to Waze were probed without obstruction. Further probe on these allegations is underway.
