AMit Shah allegation on Himachal Chief Minsiter

The prominent leaders like Dhumal and Shanta Kumar were literally pushed to the background in ceremonial open jeep ride. The prominent presence of JP Nadda with Shah has refueled speculations regarding his candidature for the Chief Minister in HP Assembly Polls 2017.

SHIMLA-The Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh, Virbhadra Singh, replied to the allegation labeled by the national President of Bhartiya Janata Party, Amit Shah, who is on a visit to Palampur, Kangra district, Himachal Pradesh, to address a party conference. Addressing a public meeting at Chandi in Doon assembly constituency of Solan district, the Chief Minister remarked that BJP leaders are habitual of mudslinging and character assassination. Mere repeating false allegations of corruption don’t make a person corrupt, he replied to Shah’s statements.

Everyone knows the role of BJP leaders in the infamous Godhra riots,

he said. It is a wrong practice in politics to level baseless charges on opponents. Politics should be healthy and not based on mudslinging, said Virbhadra Singh.

The Chief Minister rubbished all allegations terming it a pure propaganda and mudslinging to dilute his image ahead of the Assembly Polls 2017.

Though, Amit Shah is a guest of the State but I think he had no right to involve himself in giving unruly statement,

he said. He was speaking as if he was the judge though the matter was still sub-judice, he said advising Shah not to be a judge himself before the judgement of the Court.

I have no complaints against the Prime Minister, and I know him since long,

he said.

The BJP president, in an attempt to fuel political heat in the poll bound, Congress-ruled hill state, had recited under-investigation corruption charges. He alleged that the State Government is being run by retired administrative officers and mafia. As expected, Shah repeated previous announcements of NDA Government like granting more National Highways to Himachal and enhanced grants under 14th Finance Commission. Shah had alleged that the government has failed to prepare even Detailed Project Reports of the proposed National Highways.

On the other hand, the prominent presence of JP Nadda with Shah has refueled speculations regarding his candidature for the Chief Minister.

To Shah’s claim that 62 National Highways has been sanctioned for the state, Virbhadra replied that the union government has not issued even a single penny for preparation of Detailed Project Reports.

Turning the gun towards the former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and his son, he said that both of them, in connivance with Union finance Minister Arun Jaitley, are conspiring against him by levelling false charges.
So much so, three central investigating agencies are probing a single charge of my income tax returns which had long been closed, he said.

The Chief Minister said that it was for the first and the last time he is quoting the name of opponent leader in his speech. Henceforth, he added, whatever the BJP leaders say, he will consider it as mere frustration and nothing else.

The Chief Minister also said that the NDA Government under the PM Narendra Modi, has cheated the people of the state and in all his visits as he announced nothing for the state.

BJP leaders in Himachal are hoping to win Assembly elections under PM Narender Modi’s banner. However, BJP is facing dilemma over candidature of Chief Minister. The party is divided in two groups, one supporting JP Nadda as the candidate while second group stands with the former Chief Minister PK Dhumal.

Hamirpur police saving molestor

Shimla: The image of Himachal Pradesh Police was badly dented by the case relating to the gangrape and murder of a minor schoolgirl in Kotkhai, Shimla, in July 2017. 

Now, in yet another case of alleged harassment and molestation, a girl enrolled in a private college in Hamirpur town has labelled serious allegation against the local police.

As per the sources, a person had been stalking and harassing the girl, who is living in a rented room in the town, for over a month. The person, whom she identified as a member of an influential family of Maunhi (मौहीं) village, crossed the limits, used abusing words, and even molested her on Friday.

On reaching the police station with her complaint on the same day, instead of taking action the police allegedly threatened her and forced to sign a blank paper.

As per the girl, the police allegedly pressurized her to compromise in order to hush up the matter as culprit’s family was an influential one.

Eventually, the girl has approached the Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Balwinder Thakur, with her grieve complaint.The ASP has also given her an assurance that appropriate directions were given to the incharge of the station to take strict action against the culprit.  

Yesterday, a teacher of a private college in Hamirpur town was arrested for allegedly raping his pupil inside college premises. A video showing students and parents thrashing the accused publically also did rounds of social media.

The appearance of another case has put a big question mark over the law and order conditions of the town, the image of the police, and declarations made by the new government over the safety of women in Himachal.
