May 25, 2017 | By

Chandigarh: Aam Aadmi Party senior leader and leader of opposition in Punjab Vidhan Sabha, Adv. H.S. Phoolka demanded from Captain Amrinder Singh to take action against the ministers of his cabinet for allegedly indulging into wrong practices and acquiring benami contracts from Punjab Government.

Questioning silence of Captain Amrinder Singh, H S Phoolka said, “Earlier when leaders of Akali Dal were looting Punjab Captain used to accuse them but now when same is happening in his government, he is keeping his eyes closed. Captain should explain his silence that what is stopping him to take action against Rana Gurjeet Singh?”

AAP leader said that as per the law, no minister can be partner in business with his own government and violating it can lead to the suspension from the ministry. He demanded that Captain must immediately remove Rana Gurjeet from his cabinet.

“If Captain does not take any action against Rana, it indicates that he himself is indulged in wrong practices happening in his government.” he added.

It is notable that reports in media today revealed that employees of Rana Sugars owned by Punjab Cabinet Minister Rana Gurjeet have acquired Sand Mine contracts worth rupees crores in e-auction recently held by the Punjab government.
