Minister Bagwant Man Sachs, party says "Zero tolerance against corruption"
In an unprecedented move, Punjab Prime Minister Bhagwant Mann today dismissed his health minister, Bijay Singura, from the cabinet on suspicion of corruption after finding solid evidence against him. Singla allegedly demanded a 1% commission on the bid.
Prime Minister Bagwant Mann took a step after receiving a complaint against the minister. This is the second time in the history of the country that the Prime Minister has taken such strict actions against his cabinet colleagues. Previously, Aam Aadmi Party convenor and Delhi Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal dismissed one of the ministers on suspicion of corruption in 2015.
“Even a percent of corruption wouldn’t be tolerated,” Mann said in a video message. “People voted for the AAP government with a lot of hope, we have to respond. Corruption as long as mother India has a son like Arvind Keziwar and a soldier like Bhagwant Mann. A big war with him will continue. “He added. He further claimed that Mr. Singura had admitted cheating.
