Akhilesh Yadav sacked two ministers following allegations of corruption against them


LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today sacked state Mining Minister Gayatri Prajapati and Panchayti Raj Minister Rajkishore Singh who were confronting charges of debasement. 

Mr Yadav was said to be troubled with Prajapati who was buried in discussion over claims of advancing illicit mining, while affirmations of area snatching and debasement had been leveled against Mr Singh. 

The activity approaches on the heels of SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav sounding a notice to gathering pioneers, saying that move should have been made against those included in area snatching and other degenerate exercises if the gathering needed to come back to control in the 2017 Assembly decisions. 

The Chief Minister has sacked Gayatri Prajapati and Rajkishore Singh. A letter in such manner has been gotten by the Raj Bhawan, a senior authority said. 

Mr Prajapati's sacking comes days after the High Court dismisses the SP government's supplication to pull back a request for a CBI test into asserted unlawful mining in the state. 

The resistance, be that as it may, claimed that the sacking of the pastors was only an eyewash. 

Taking a dreary perspective of illicit mining in Uttar Pradesh, the Allahabad High Court on July 28 coordinated the CBI to explore the matter over the state, including the part of government authorities in encouraging the same, and present a report inside six weeks. 

The High Court on September 9 dismisses an application by the state government for withdrawal of its request. 

"Illicit mining is wild in the state and it is an open mystery that he was advancing it. Presently when the HC has taken genuine perspective of the matter and requested CBI test, the CM's choice is unimportant an eyewash. It won't help as individuals know the truth," Congress pioneer Rita Bahuguna Joshi said. 

BJP state general secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak said it was great that CM has taken the choice to sack the clergyman. 

"Our gathering has been raising the matter of illicit mining in the state. The choice ought to have been taken before," Mr Pathak said. 

Mr Prajapati started as Minister of State for Irrigation in February 2013 and was moved to the lucrative billet of mining, straightforwardly under Yadav who took care of that portfolio. 

In July 2013, Mr Yadav hoisted Mr Prajapati to MoS (Independent Charge) and in January 2014, he was made a Cabinet Minister.
