Chavan further revealed to the commission that the irregularities in the allotment of plots worth more than Rs 25 lakhs was taken by Deshmukh in Mumbai, Pune and its suburbs.The affidavit, quoted by a leading newspaper had Chavan stating that “I say that there was no question of my suggesting that civilian members be included in the Society. And any suggestion that this was discussed with me or that I had suggested or directed or decided on the same is false and denied.""In the meeting I have asked the department only to look into the issue relating to the allotment of the land and call for the required information in the respect thereof. No decision was taken at the meeting,” he said."At that stage the matter relating to allotment of land was still only at the stage of verification of the proposal and there was no question of the Revenue department having taken any decision on allotment of land.”
