Cabinet reshuffle another fraud on people: Bhim Singh

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Jan 16: Dubbing the State Cabinet reshuffle as another fraud on people of Jammu and Kashmir to project ‘B’ team of equally tainted and corrupt Ministers as were in the previous team, Panthers Party leader Prof Bhim Singh has demanded judicial inquiry into the assets and wealth of all the past and present Ministers.
In a statement, Prof Singh said that a judicial probe by a sitting judge of Supreme Court should be ordered for the purpose and spouses of the Ministers since 1975 should also be included into the ambit of inquiry. Ninety percent Ministers have raised illegal assets and raised black money from the State properties and departments, he said and also demanded immediate dismissal of the tainted Government so that the people may elect the representatives of their choice.
Prof Bhim Singh sought to know whether Delhi intended to rule J&K through the tainted Ministers, corrupt politicians and land grabbers. “One Minister appointed was fired by a majority vote inside the Assembly for having collected bribes for the transfer of a school teacher while another Minister, who is involved in grabbing the State and the forest land and facing trials before the legislature as well as Accountability Commission has been elevated. Similarly, one more Minister who was fired for another scam has been promoted after his release from the prison,” the Panthers leader said adding that the Chief Minister himself is facing a criminal writ petition in the Supreme Court of India on the alleged murder of his party worker, Haji Yousuf in police custody.
