Activist M Ravi has posted on Facebook stating that he will be taking out an application in the High Court against Minister of Home Affairs and Law, K Shanmugam, for alleged breach in his code of conduct as a law minister. He is demanding Mr Shanmugam resign from his ministerial post within 48 hours, failing which he would file his application in court.
Ravi claims that the breach in conduct has caused "deepest disquiet in the minds of the public". Ravi has accused Mr Shanmugam of committing adultery. However, his post does not give any evidence to back up his claims.

"I will be taking out application shortly in the High Court for a declaration that Sham , the unlawful law minister is in breach of his code of conduct as a law minister and has the ministerial responsibility to resign within the next 48 hours , failing which I will file such application .
The breach of code of conduct for Minsters and particularly a law Minister has caused deepest disquiet in the minds of the public and such breach of ethics arising from sexual misconduct and adultery is not in line with the equality principle envisioned by th national pledge.
If Sham denies that he didn't commit adultery , then I will rest my case.
Speak to you Soon"
