Lal Thanzara resigned as a minister and legislator in 2015 in the wake of allegation that he held plethora of share in a Delhi based Company Sunshine Overseas. He was elected again in the by-election and was accorded Health & Family Welfare, Information & Public Relation and Information & Communication Technology department in his brother’s cabinet.
“Even as there was no official notification directing Lal Thanzara to assist the Chief Minister, the former had convened meeting of PWD and P&E department on a number of occasions as though he is helping his brother, which is illegal,” the statement said.
