On Saturday, the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) terminated the license of Bihar Health Minister, Tej Pratap Yadav’s petrol pump, after he failed to present a satisfactory explanation to the notice issued over the allocation of the property in the state.
Earlier on May 31, BPCL issued a notice to the health minister over the procurement of the license.
In 2011, BJP leader, Sushil Kumar Modi had alleged that Yadav had resorted to unfair means by filing fake documents to procure a license from the company. Kumar had ordered a probe into the matter, following which the company had issued a notice to Yadav.
The BPCL sought Pratap’s explanation on how he had acquired the licence and asked him to reply within 15 days.
