Sack Naik from Cabinet: Poojary

Former Union Minister and Congress leader B Janardhana Poojary has sought Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to dismiss Labour Minister P T Parameshwar Naik from the Cabinet for “misusing” power. Naik has been in the dock over getting officials transferred in Ballari district.

Speaking to media persons at the District Congress office on Saturday, Poojary said people would lose faith in the party if no action was taken against the minister and hence Siddaramaiah should initiate measures against Naik at the earliest. He said there was no need for the chief minister to sacrifice the party for a single person.

Referring to Rahul Gandhi meeting the kin of Rohit Vemula, the dalit research scholar who committed suicide in Hyderabad, Poojary regretted that not even a single minister from the Andhra Pradesh government had met the relatives of Vemula.
