The Punjab unit of BJP on Saturday sought a special investigation into the assets of former railway minister Pawan Kumar Bansal, who resigned after his nephew was arrested for allegedly trying to fix promotion for a member in the Railway Board.
Bansal's personal wealth and that of his family and relatives increased manifold ever since he became minister, BJP state vice-president Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina said.
"People have the right to know how his assests grew so rapidly," he said at a public meeting here.
Bansal's nephew Vijay Singla was caught by CBI taking Rs 90 lakh for allegedly trying to fix promotion for a member in the Railway Board, he said.
"This shows how the posts are being sold under the Congress-led UPA government," Chhina said.
