Patna: RJD on Monday urged Governor Devanand Konwar to sack the Health Minister Ashwani Chaube in the wake of an incident in which a health official allegedly collected money from some people for hosting a government function in Bihar`s Bhagalpur district last month.
"It has happened for the first time in Bihar that a health official publicity wrote letters to private persons and even nursing homes for contributions to host a government function at Bhagalpur last month," RJD chief general secretary Ramkripal Yadav told reporters.
Observing that the incident pointed to institutionalization of corruption during the NDA rule, he urged the governor to intervene in the matter and sack the health minister.
