After Enforcement Directorate summoned Punjab cabinet minister Bikram Singh Majithia in drug racket case, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Kamal Sharma on Sunday demanded Majithia's resignation for a fair probe.

Congress state chief Partap Singh Bajwa sais, “ED can only interrogate on money laundering, but there are more serious charges of abetting."

"I appeal PM if you really want thorough probe, either CBI or sitting judge should monitor entire thing," he added.

Meanwhile senior lawyer HS Phoolka said, " It is a very serious case, he must resign from Ministry at the earliest."

He also demanded that the inquiry should be shifted out of Punjab immediately.
