Punjab minister arrested after CM sacks him over corruption charges

The Punjab Anti-Corruption Bureau has arrested Health Minister Vijay Singla after Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday sacked him on a corruption charge reportedly after solid evidence was found against him. According to reports,  Singla was allegedly demanding a one per cent commission on tenders. Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann took the step after he received a complaint against the Minister just 10 days back. This is only the second time in the country's history that a Chief Minister has taken such strict action against their own cabinet colleague. Earlier, Aam Aadmi Party convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had in 2015 sacked one of his Ministers on corruption charges.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said he is proud of his Punjab counterpart Bhagwant Mann for sacking minister Vijay Singla over corruption allegations, and assured that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won't spare even its own leaders if found involved in corruption.
