NewZNew (Jalandhar/Chandigarh) : Punjab revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia today said he had extended full cooperation to the central agency despite the short notice given to him as he was keen to join investigations and ensure the truth is laid bare before the people.
In a statement here, Mr Majithia said he had acted in a pro active manner ever since he received the central agency’s summons on December 19. ” I was engaged in a three day assembly session and there was a three day holiday also. I could have asked for and got an alternate date. However I decided not only to receive the summons on phone but also present myself before the agency at the first opportunity itself”, he added.
The minister said he had always maintained from day one that the truth should come out and it was because of this that he was keen that investigations on this issue be speeded up.
“Earlier also five central agencies have investigated the matter during Congress led UPA rule and found nothing in it. Now I want a closure to the media trial I am being subjected to on a daily basis since the last one year and this is why I am myself keen to answer any queries on this issue as quickly as possible”.
