Governor Dr Kamla nodded for the prosecution of minister of state for fisheries Parshottam Solanki in connection with an alleged Rs 400 crore fisheries contract scam. This has also increased problems of senior minister Dilip Sanghani for approving the contracts. He signed the files approving of contracts without tenders.
Looking at the entire case, in 2009 fishing contracts of various reservoirs were given. But a scam of 400 crore came out in this contract. A PIL was filed and high court ordered to dismiss all the contracts. The high court ordered to take legal action against Solanki, however, Deputy Secretary of government said that no criminal action can be taken of Solanki for which action was not taken against him.
At first the State Government did not approved to take action following which the High Court left decision on the Governor. After this, state government handed over all the necessary documents to the governor. Hence now the governor has decided to take legal action against Solanki.
