New Delhi, Mar.23 (ANI): The Delhi Lokayukta has sent a report to Lieutenant Governor Tejinder Khanna seeking a review of its earlier recommendation for censuring Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit for allegedly misrepresenting facts about construction of low-cost flats ahead of assembly polls in 2008.
The Lokayukta, in the report sent to Khanna, has requested him to forward it to President Pratibha Patil for her review.
In an order last year, Lokayukta Justice Manmohan Sarin had slammed Dikshit for alleged misrepresentation of facts about construction of 60,000 low-cost flats in the run up to the assembly polls.
In response to a complaint, the Lokayukta in its order has said that Dikshit had stated that 60,000 low-cost houses were ready for allotment when they were not even built.
The Lokayukta has recommended the President to take appropriate action against the chief minister, but the President has virtually rejected the report and asked the concerned department of the Delhi government to be careful on such issues.
"The Lokayukta has sent a special report to Lt Governor Tejinder Khanna seeking review of the earlier observation of the President. The Lokayukta had requested the LG to send the special report to the President and at the same time place it before the Delhi Assembly for necessary action," a television channel quoted sources in the Lokayukta, as saying.
Dikshit has rejected the allegation of misrepresenting facts. (ANI)
