[RxPG] Lucknow, May 15 - A special Central Bureau of Investigation - court here Tuesday adjourned hearing in the Taj Corridor real estate scam involving new Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati.

As the proceedings awaited the statutory sanction of state Governor T.V. Rajeshwar, the designated CBI court Judge Rekha Dikshit declared the case adjourned until 'such sanction was obtained'.

Meanwhile, sources in Lucknow's Raj Bhawan - maintained that the question of granting sanction did not arise until the court established a prima facie case against the accused persons, which, other than Mayawati, include her senior-most cabinet colleague Naseemuddin, the then principal environment secretary R.K. Sharma and two other government officials.

'The stage for granting or not granting sanction would arise only after the designated court is able to establish a prima facie case against the accused, in pursuance of an order issued by the Supreme Court,' said a highly-placed source.

Former chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav had, barely 48 hours before the counting of votes began for the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, forwarded the Taj Corridor case file to the governor, seeking his mandatory approval to let the CBI go ahead with its prosecution proceedings against Mayawati.

Earlier, the designated CBI court had fixed May 15 as the deadline for CBI to submit all documents relating to the case, together with the statutory sanction from the governor to initiate prosecution against Mayawati.

The designated court had taken up the case on a direction of the apex court to go into all the available material and documents to determine whether a concrete corruption case could be made out against the Bahujan Samaj Party leader.

The CBI had also submitted its preliminary investigation report in the case as early as on Feb 15. 'We were clearly of the view that it was a fit case to be taken up,' said a CBI official,

However, with the attorney general of India completely disapproving the idea of proceeding against her, the entire case was about to be dropped when a public suit was moved before the apex court which entrusted the fundamental question to the designated CBI court here.
