Centaur Sale Corruption Charge Against NDA a Farce: CBI

After three years of investigation, CBI has concluded its inquiries on Sales of Centaur Hotels and found nothing wrong in the privatization process.

In 2002, NDA Disinvested the loss-making Centaur hotels. However, when things came to a head when UPA came to power in 2004 with the support of the Left who demanded that the UPA not only cancel the sale but also investigate NDA Disinvestment Minister Arun Shourie’s “personal role” in it. 

According to CBI

“The CBI was asked to look into the points raised by the CAG report. But our investigation hasn’t revealed any irregularities and preliminary enquiries have been shut down.”

However Communist parties are not letting it go. CPI’s D Raja said,

“We do not know on what grounds and facts the CBI has given the clean chit. We have to see them.”

UPA Govt. should show honesty and apologize to Arun Shourie for raising unsubstantiated charges against him. It would do well if they ignore the "Barking Dogs"
