The “pals turned foe” Meals Processing and Horticulture Minister Fauja Singh Sarari and his former aide Tarsem Lal Kapoor held a close-door assembly right here in Sector 39 late final evening.
Kapoor had put the audio tapes of the minister on the social media, whereby the minister was reportedly discussing methods to lure the foodgrain transporters and later extract cash from them.
Kapoor is aggrieved because the minister didn’t assist him in a case registered towards his nephew Jonny Kapoor, for inflicting insult to nationwide flag.
Info gathered by The Tribune reveals that the duo had a closed-door assembly on the residence of the minister until round 11.30 pm final evening.
Kapoor had reportedly arrived there in a Swift automotive and was accompanied by another folks, who’re attempting to dealer peace between the 2 sides.
Each Sarari and Kapoor didn’t reply to calls.
Simply earlier than this assembly, either side had been summoned by the social gathering prime brass in Chandigarh. Sources say that Sarari had insisted he was harmless and the tape was doctored, whereas Kapoor had admitted to leaking the audio tapes.
Because the Opposition clamour demanding the ouster of the minister grows, the ruling Aam Aadmi Social gathering is reportedly in a repair.
It was solely in Could this yr that Well being minister within the AAP authorities, Vijay Singla was sacked and arrested on corruption fees. With the social gathering’s clear stance on pursuing an anti-corruption agenda, it stays to be seen how the social gathering would cope with this challenge at hand.
