New Delhi, 13 Dec 2016 : Congress leader Randeep Surjewala on Tuesday demanded the resignation of Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju for his alleged involvement in an Arunachal Pradesh hydro project scam.

Surjewala said: “The minister has no right to remain on his post. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who talks of transparency and honesty, should get this (Rijiju’s involvement in scam) investigated by an independent agency.

“Till that time, the Prime Minister should either dismiss the Minister of State or ask for his resignation.”

Surjewala also demanded an investigation against all the senior officials associated with the project.
