NEW DELHI, India: The Opposition parties in the Parliament have demanded the resignation of Jagdish Tytler, the former Civil Aviation Minister and now holding the labor portfolio in the Union Ministry in view of the strictures passed against him in a judgment delivered by the Bombay High Court on the petition filed by Mr. Harish Chander, the Kanpur Deputy General Manager of Air India. The demand for resignation was demanded at zero hour by the Janata Party leader Prof. Madhu Dandvate, Inderjit Gupta, C.P.I., C.P.M. leader Vasudeva Acharaya and others. The Speaker ruled out all the adjournment motions as out of order. He said, if the members wanted to raise the issue they could do it through a substantive motion. However, the opposition members continued in their persistence. Prof. Dandwate argued that suck strictures have been passed by the court as well as by court of enquiries and often the ministers had to resign. A Minister in Maharashtra resigned because of the strictures passed against him by a court.
