Appreciating the action of Jail Minister Sarwan Singh Phillaur in resigning on moral grounds, former health minister and senior BJP leader Satpal Gosain on Friday demanded resignation of Revenue Minister Bikramjit Singh Majithia.
“Even Revenue Minister Bikramjit Singh Majithia should follow in his footsteps as his name is also in the drug racket. Once he does this, the image of party will grow bigger,” Gosain said. “If they are innocent, a clean chit will always be given to them.”
He added, “Had the jail minister given his resignation before the polls and Majithia also followed him, things would have been different in Punjab and the results would have been in favour of the ruling alliance.” Gosain said, “Any minister or leader whose name is figuring in the drug racket, must resign on moral grounds and should come out in the open for a probe.”
Later, talking about Ludhiana, the former health minister said, “Few BJP leaders did anti-party activities in Ludhiana against the SAD-BJP candidate in elections and those leaders must also resign. There were few leaders in other parts of the state as well who did anti-party activities, they should also resign.”
He added, “If these BJP leaders fail to do so, they must be forced to resign so as to give a clean image to the party.”
Gosain had earlier also spoken against the multi-crore VAT refund scam against his own alliance government and had stated that the government was going slow in booking the culprits involved in the scam. He had even demanded a CBI inquiry into the refund scam.
