The Communist Party of India (Marxist) has demanded a CBI inquiry into the allegations regarding the involvement of Punjab revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia in the drug racket.

Addressing a rally of workers of the Centre of Indian Trade Union (CITU) at Rupnagar on Wednesday, CPM Punjab secretariat member and CITU state general secretary Raghunath Singh said it was amply clear from the disclosures made by druglord Jagdish Bhola regarding the involvement of Majithia in drug trade that the minister and leaders of the ruling alliance have stooped low to amass wealth by indulging in drug trade.

He said a CBI inquiry into the matter was necessary as it would expose the real face of politicians of the ruling SAD-BJP alliance, the Congress and bureaucracy.

Raghunath Singh said there was 'Jungle Raj' in the state as law and order situation had deteriorated to such an extent that lawmakers are violating the law.

He added that the CPM would hold a mass contact campaign from January 21 to 31 to highlight the main issues of the people and to expose the corrupt practices of leaders of the ruling alliance and Congress and their involvement in drug trade.
