Maran must go: BJP

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday said the continuation of Dayanidhi Maran in the Union Cabinet had now become “untenable” and he must resign immediately.

Party spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman pointed out that the BJP had demanded his resignation even earlier, but now that the Central Bureau of Investigation had filed a status report before the Supreme Court that Mr. Maran had forced Aircel to transfer shares to a Malaysian company, the government must ask him to quit his ministerial position.

She said the United Progressive Alliance government had taken action against leaders of its allied parties – the reference was to the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam – but it must also look inwards at the role of senior Congress Ministers.
