The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has reiterated its demand for initiating legal action against Punjab cabinet minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu, seeking hi immediate  dismissal from the Punjab council of ministers, for his alleged criminal activities.Senior leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Leader of Opposition, Harpal Singh Cheema, met the Punjab governor VP Singh Badnore, on Friday and submitted a memorandum in this regard, urging him to initiate immediate legal action against the minister, who had courted several controversies, including his alleged links with terrorists.Cheema in the memorandum submitted to the governor said that the minister  Bharat Bhushan Ashu was arrested in the year 1992 by the police in Ludhiana on the charge of harbouring terrorists, alleging that he had been behind several criminal acts, including the Gur Mandi bomb blasts in Ludhiana, besides hatching a conspiracy to kill his kin, saying that he had made a confessional statement in this regard.

The AAP leader said that a man holding such a huge responsibility in the council of ministers and allegedly involved in several criminal activities was roaming free and rubbing  shoulders with all those matter in the scheme of things, saying it was a potential threat to democratic traditions of the country. He added that several other cases, like his alleged involvement in the multi-crore CLU (Ludhiana) scam and browbeating a police DSP level officer from performing his official duty, prove his criminal past.The memorandum also raised the issue regularization of thousands of Guest Faculty Assistant Professors working in various state-run government colleges  against the sanctioned posts for years now.The memorandum also condemned the captain Amarinder Singh government for mounting a brutal attack on the ETT/ NET qualified teachers who were holding a peaceful protest in Patiala in support of their long-pending demands, adding that it was their legitimate right. He said the government in the saddle should immediately offer jobs to them and live its poll promises offering ‘ghar ghar rozgar’.
