Government must order judicial inquiry into the promotion scam in Forest Corporation: Kultar Singh Sandhwan


– How long will Raja Amarinder Singh save his blue eyed scam minister: Baljinder Kaur
Chandigarh, August 31 (Punjab Mail)- Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab has demanded immediate sacking of Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot, who is now embroiled in promotion scam in Forest Corporation after multi crore scholarship scam, along with a time bound judicial inquiry of irregularities in the Forest Corporation.
In a statement issued from the party headquarters, senior party leaders and MLAs Kultar Singh Sandhwan and Prof. Baljinder Kaur questioned Chief Minister Amarinder Singh that what was the compulsion or helplessness which is preventing ruling Congress from taking action against a corrupt minister? The people of Punjab are demanding an answer from the Chief Minister as well as the entire Congress leadership.
Mr. Kultar Singh Sandhwan said that the manner and speed with which the promotions have been executed in Punjab Forest Corporation (whose Minister is Dharamsot), indicates towards corruption. Mr. Sandhwan said that Aam Aadmi Party has always advocated for timely and transparent promotions in government departments on merit but in the case of Forest Corporation where the field superintendents have been made project directors instead of deputy project directors apart from passing the orders of future promotions puts question mark on the entire process. Therefore, an impartial judicial inquiry is utmost important.
Prof. Mr. Baljinder Kaur said that till Sadhu Singh Dharamsot was not removed from the Cabinet, impartial probe in scholarship scam and promotion scam will not be possible. Therefore, Dharamsot should be removed from the post of Minister immediately.
Prof. Baljinder Kaur said that Congress and Chief Minister could not save a corrupt minister Dharamsot for long. The government will have to give up its dictatorial attitude and bow before the struggle waged by AAP for the sake of justice.
