"Sham Lal Sharma`s name have been came to the limelight in a two kanal land grabbing scam in Domana area whereas, the three daughters of Taj Mohi-ud-Din had grabbed 342 kanal of land in Jammu by taking advantage of Taj and there is no action against the Ministers, "Gupta alleged and demanded resignation from Sham and Taj at the earliest.
He said that even Azad faction of Congress has recently demanded resignation from Sham Lal Sharma and government must expel both these ministers immediately.
Taking dig at the Government, Gupta said that state government has internally `collapsed` but the Skelton is still there. "There are cracks in the coalition and people are suffering a lot due to tit for tat policy of NC-Congress coalition."
Terming three years period as black period, Gupta said that government has become nonexistent and there is no work on the ground.
BJP has also demanded to clear all cases pending in Accountability Commission against certain government ministers and bureaucrats and accused government of diluting the commission for saving their own skin.
