Jammu | Political parties in Jammu and Kashmir have demanded a high-level inquiry into the corruption allegations leveled against Union Minister Jitendra Singh by BJP leader and former Legislative Councilor Vikram Randhawa. The Jammu and Kashmir Congress has demanded a high-level inquiry into Singh’s resignation and allegations.
The National Conference and Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) have also demanded an inquiry into the matter. Randhawa, the secretary of BJP’s Jammu and Kashmir unit and president of the Strawn Crushers Association, has made serious allegations of corruption on Jitendra Singh’s office in Jammu over the mining policy. Randhawa had also threatened to commit self-immolation on this matter. BJP’s disciplinary committee has also issued a show cause notice to Randhawa in this case.
On Tuesday, a group of party workers, led by Uday Bhanu Chib, president of the youth wing of the Congress, gathered in front of the Congress headquarters to demand the resignation of the Union Minister. “The sensational revelations of Randhawa have exposed the mining mafia and the collusion of the BJP,” Chib told reporters. There should be a high-level inquiry into these allegations. ”Earlier, Congress corporator Gaurav Chopra said that mining and liquor shops are auctioned in a planned manner to loot the local people. The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee issued a statement demanding the resignation of Jitendra Singh, saying that “Hafta culture” being run under the patronage of powerful people should be investigated. In this case, the law should do its job. ”
The Congress said that this matter is a test of time for the Modi government and the Jammu and Kashmir administration, so Jitendra Singh should be removed and a clear message should be given otherwise the public’s trust will be lost from administration. The NC has demanded a probe by the current Supreme Court judge into the allegations. The party spokesperson said in a statement, “The allegations were made by none other than the BJP’s state secretary and former member of the Legislative Council. These are serious in nature and cannot be ignored. ”The spokesman said that the truth will be revealed only after a free and fair investigation in a time bound manner. JKAP Provincial President and former Minister Manjit Singh also said that a fair inquiry is necessary for the truth to come out.
