Marandi brings proof to corner munda in corruption charges
Ranchi, Jul 6 (UNI) Stepping up his tirade against Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda, former incumbent and JVM president Babulal Marandi today brought proof to substantiate his allegation against his predecessor, saying the Chief Minister had taken huge bribes while giving mining lease to a particular company.
Mr Marandi said the present Chief Minister, who was a "cheat" should resign and vowed to resort to all democratic means to continue with his "fight corruption mission".
" Soon I will write a letter to the Prime Minister, requesting a probe into my allegation brought against Mr Munda, " he told newspersons here and demanded a CBI inquiry besides assessment of the Chief Minister's property earned through dubious means.
The Jharkhand Vikash Morcha president said he had resigned from the BJP on three issues - corruption, lack of development and sense of insecurity instilled in the people's mind in the state.
" In the past two months, the Munda government and the BJP are daring me come up with concrete proof to justify the allegation, " he said and cited an incident regarding an iron ore in which the lease agreement was cancelled and it was given to the same group after the munda government allegedly took crores of rupees from the party.
In this respect, he furnished papers at a press conference here.
This is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of corruption indulged in by the munda government , he said adding the chief minister was now involved in malpractices in all departments.
Asked the bureaucratic set up was equally instrumental in the scams, Mr Marandi said the each of the scams was to the tine of crores and it could not escape the chief minister's eyes.
Mr Munda was the real culprit and he should resign, Mr Marandi said.
