BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya today demanded immediate resignation of the "tainted" Cabinet ministers of West Bengal after CBI booked top 12 ruling TMC leaders in connection with the Narada sting operation case.
"We demand that the tainted ministers resign from the Cabinet immediately. They have lost the moral right to continue in office. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee should immediately remove them from the ministry.
"The TMC claims to be a symbol of honesty. If the tainted ministers are not removed, it means TMC supports corruption," he said.
A total of 12 Trinamool Congress leaders, including MPs and ministers in the West Bengal government, and an IPS officer have been booked by the CBI in the Narada sting case, where they were allegedly caught on camera accepting bribe.
