Panaji: Adv Aires Rodrigues has today demanded an immediate vigilance probe into the multi-crore land scam involving Congress MLA of Shiroda Subhash Shirodkar.

Expressing anguish that the Cabinet Advisory Committee comprising of Sudin Dhavalikar, Francis D’Souza and Vijai Sardesai was allowing such a blatant illegality of acquiring 1, 83, 524 sq mts of orchard land in Shiroda from Subhash Shirodkar at a very exorbitant price of a whopping 70 crores, Adv. Rodrigues has also questioned the very stoic silence of the Congress Party on this mega land scam.

Alleging that the whole unholy and unlawful deal by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar was to deceptively reward Subhash Shirodkar for politically flirting with the BJP, Adv. Rodrigues has stated that such devious politriks could not be at the cost of the State exchequer.

Pointing out that Vedanta Real Estate Developers owned by Subhash Shirodkar and his three brothers Amit, Umesh and Sattesh had bought that land on 19th October 2006 for a mere Rs 45 rupees a square meter, Adv. Rodrigues has questioned the audacity of the government in now acquiring the same land for a very hefty price of Rs 3,500 per sq meter.

Adv. Rodrigues has also expressed surprise that the land is being acquired by the Industries department without having any plan in place for what purpose the acquired land will be used.

Stating that another land owner had by a letter dated 5th April 2018 addressed to the Chief Secretary offered the government 1,40,650 sq mts of his land in Shiroda Taluka for a mere Rs 350 a sq mt, Adv. Rodrigues has stated that a copy of that letter was also sent to Ministers Sudin Dhavalikar, Francis D’Souza and Vijai Sardesai.

Citing the recent example of Canacona based Dr R. Venkatesh’s whose bills have been kept pending for years, Adv. Rodrigues has stated that it was an irony that 70 crores form the State exchequer was sought to be hurriedly and fraudulently doled out to Subhash Shirodkar out of sheer political expediency.
