KL Desk

Relieved after dissolution of house committee, minister  for PHE and Irrigation, Taj Mohi ud din on Wednesday alleged Amrit Malhotra, Chairman of state Legislative Council for trying to destabilize the coalition government in J&K by creating wedge between the National Conference and Congress and said that  he will request the Congress High Command in Delhi to remove him (Amit Malhotar).

“I will send the request to Congress High Command in News Delhi and ask them to take action against the Chairman after taking the National Conference on board”, Taj told media persons in Jammu on Wednesday.

“He failed in his efforts. He accused NC saving me but forgets that 8 members of Congress had already written to him stressing that his step was unconstitutional”, he added.

Taj reiterated his stand that the house committee constituted to probe charges of land grabs against him was unconstitutional. “The Charges are a conspiracy against me. The charges have been investigated by the Accountability Commission in 2005 and by the Vigilance Commission in 2011. They found nothing against me and I am still open to probe by them”.

Taj Mohi ud din said he was following the directions of the Congress High Command to strengthen Chief Minister Omar Abdullah. “I am strengthening the Chief Minister on the directions of High Command. I am ready to face any probe whether by vigilance or accountability commission. It is good that the committee has been dissolved”, he added.
Taj accused Congress MLC Bashir Ahmad Magray of backtracking by giving different statements to media in Kashmir and Jammu.

He said the land at Sedow in Shopian has been legally transferred to his name under the Roshni Act and that he is not against any kind of probe or investigation against him. “My problem was with the house committee as it was unconstitutional.”
