Till date no actionhas been taken against ministers, bureaucrats, policemen fortheir involvement or patronising to grab the rights of others''lands under the present dispensation of Omar Abdullah," BJPstate spokesperson Ramesh Arora told reporters here today.

"We question the intention of the Chief Minister whiledeclaring 2011 as an anti-corruption year. Motive should bereflected in action and ministers involved directly orindirectly should be sacked from the government," he said.
