NEW DELHI: The Communist Party of India on Wednesday demanded the removal of Bihar Governor Buta Singh and a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation into corruption charges in flood relief in the State among other issues.

Referring to the day-long bandh called by the party along with other political organisations in the State, CPI Lok Sabha leader Gurudas Dasgupta said the demands include check on criminalisation of politics and provision of power and water to the people who were suffering due to non-availability.

He said the bandh was successful in several parts of the State and that several party leaders had been taken into custody. On the removal of the Governor, Mr. Dasgupta said despite Central rule there was no improvement in the law and order situation in the State.

Besides the CPI, the CPI (M-L) and other political parties had given the bandh call.

The CPI (M-L) Liberation held a mass protest in the Capital and several places in Bihar. .
