Arrest Jindal, Dasari N Rao: CPI(M)


THE Haryana state committee of the CPI(M) has demanded immediate arrest of Congress member of parliament, Navin Jindal, in the wake of registration of an FIR by the CBI against him, and of the former minister of state Dasari Narayan Rao for their active involvement in the infamous Coalgate scam. The CBI has filed the case on the basis of substantial proof of procuring coal block allotments through the offer of a huge amount of money as bribe and also through commitment of a fraud by furnishing wrong affidavits.


In a press release issued from Rohtak on June 13, CPI(M) state secretary Inderjit Singh ask the Congress high command to tell Jindal to resign from his parliamentary seat as it was now apparent that he had grossly misused his political clout as a leader of the ruling party for amassing wealth by fraudulent means.


It was yet again a glaring instance of the modus operandi of squandering national wealth and natural resources by an obnoxious nexus comprising the corrupt ruling politicians, corporate sector and the bureaucracy, the CPI(M) press release said.
