Irrigation Scam : Controversial irrigation official back in saddle

Mumbai: Three months after shunting out water resources secretary DP Shirke following allegations against him in the multi-crore irrigation scam, chief minister Prithviraj Chavan has finally given him an alternative posting.

Shirke has now been posted as the managing director of Aurangabad-based Maharashtra Water Conservation Corporation (MWCC). This posting would alienate Shirke from irrigation projects and the department’s day-to-day functioning. Shirke is facing a departmental inquiry for allegedly clearing cost escalation in irrigation projects as former executive director of the Vidarbha Irrigation Development Corporation. TNN
