Shimla Ridge Maidan floods with fans as Virbhadra Singh takes oath as HP CM
Shimla got completely green as Virbhadra Singh yesterday took oath as the Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh for the record sixth time. Along with his 10 member ministry, Raja Ji sworn to God that he would be committed towards the duties and the public of the State of Himachal Pradesh. But, don’t worry, they are not going to disappoint by being true to their words. Ability to lie in front of thousands of people is a one of the precious gift that almost every politician posses here in India. However, there is no doubt in the fact that Virbhadra Singh is the most experienced political leader, who have headed the congress government in Himachal five times earlier, has been seven-time MLA, five-time MP, and four- time President of the Congress in Himachal. He is the first reason behind the congress’s win on 36 seats in the 68-member Assembly including one independent MLA. Second reason is that Mr. Dhumal turned Himachal into an open candy shop for the real estate giants and successfully sold a lot of agricultural and forestland to the tree butchers in the last five years. Now, we can at least hope that the new government would shut down the shop for the good of local public.
Anyway, apart from the politics and the drama, HW has some scenes from the day, which are worth sharing with our readers. Hope most of them would amuse you and compensate for if you couldn’t mark your present on the Ridge Maidan to witness the oath ceremony.
