CM Virbhadra owes his popularity to corruption cases: Anurag
Shimla: Anurag Thakur, Himachal Pradesh: Member of Parliament Hamirpur, took a jibe at Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh for the reason of his popularity in the State. The popularity of their CM is the result of his disproportionate assets and the corruption cases in his name, he said.
This statement came as a reply to a statement given by Congress leaders that BJP is afraid of Chief Minister’s popularity.
Anurag Thakur said the state has been impacted negatively in the current regime of Congress government owing to the selfish and indifferent attitude of the Chief Minister.
He along with his family has been involved in a number of corruption cases right from the time he assumed office in 2013, he alleged.
Not even once has the CM come on record and made his statement clear about his involvement in these cases,
The common man of Himachal has the right to know how their money is being used because public money is not for buying farmhouse in Delhi or for personal use of the CM and his family,
He further said that once Himachal that had received close to 85 awards and accorded the number one position has now slipped to 24th position in the ranking.
Every second day you hear the news about crime against women and the Chief Minister regards such incidents as common and frivolous, he said.
A few days back, the Chief Minister had retaliated to repeated remarks over his time spent in cases against him. While addressing a public meeting at Amb in district Una on September 15, he had said,
They (BJP leaders) are attacking the Congress leader whom they fear the most.
He had also admitted spending a lot of time his court cases but justified that these cases are falsely framed by the BJP.
I am tired but not defeated. BJP should forget, rather should never think of defeating me even in their dreams,
he had said.
The CM had further said he was waiting for the moment when the judiciary of the country will honourably acquit him of all fabricated cases framed by the opponents.
