Sunder Sham Arora, arrested in the Aam Aadmi Party government, is the third former minister to be arrested after Sadhu Singh Dharamsot and Bharat Bhushan Ashu and the first leader from the Congress to join the BJP. Sources reveal that many more former ministers are also on the target of Vigilance. It may be noted that Sunder Sham Arora has been close to former minister Captain Amarinder Singh. Captain Amarinder Singh had merged his party Punjab Lok Congress with the BJP some time back.
At the same time, Arora had already joined the BJP. After the formation of the Aam Aadmi Party government, in the government of Captain Amarinder Singh, Forest Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot was arrested by Vigilance in the forest scam. He got bail from the Punjab and Haryana High Court after a lot of hard work. Former minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu was also arrested by the Vigilance team recently when he was getting his hair cut in the salon.
Another former Congress minister Sangat Singh Giljian is also the target of Bhagwant Mann government. A case has been registered against him in the Jungle scam. Vigilance is looking for Gilzian to arrest him. Giljiyan has been underground for a long time and is not able to reach Vigilance. Apart from this, former speaker Rana KP Singh is also on the target of Vigilance. He too had gone to Delhi to join the BJP but the party refused to accept him.
