The Punjab CMO said, “He is accused of demanding one percent commission from the officers in lieu of the contracts. Concrete evidence has also been found against Vijay Singla. Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann said about his decision that this has been done so that the government can be kept free from corruption. The police have also been ordered to register a case against Singla. Bhagwant Mann said in the video message, ‘I am taking a tough decision against the minister. I am removing him from my cabinet. We have enough evidence of his involvement in corruption case.
I do not care that the opposition parties will attack me and say that the minister was removed only after two months of government formation. The thing is that we will not tolerate any kind of corruption under any circumstances. Our national convener (Arvind Kejriwal) has made it clear that corruption will not be tolerated. In 2015, he himself removed a minister in Delhi after he was accused of corruption.
