BJP for dismissal of Moily over allegations of favours

New Delhi: Demands for dismissal of Petroleum Minister M Veerappa Moily were made in Lok Sabha on Tuesday by BJP members following reports alleging that a corporate giant provided funds to his family-controlled trust when he headed the Corporate Affairs Ministry.

"Dismiss Moily" chanted BJP members during the Zero Hour.

Their shouts were drowned in the din created by DMK and AIADMK members, who had stormed the Well on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue.

Moily was not present in the House.

The reports had claimed that the Kissan Sabha Trust (KST), headed by him and run by his family members, had received funds from a corporate giant last year when he was the Corporate Affairs Minister.
