“The Beas river tragedy in Himachal is not an accident, but a murder of 24 innocent young citizens,” said Member parliament/Sr. BJP leader Mr. Shanta Kumar at Dharamshala on Wednesday.

Replying to the queries of the media about Tharot (Pandoh) accident, Mr. Shanta said that though this killing was not intentional, yet the culprit must be punished under the law of the nation. He said,”I am surprised by the clean chit of Chief Minister Mr. Virbhadra Singh to the water releasing authorities without waiting for the investigation results.”

Mr. Shanta said that there is no harm if a government can be formed with the collaboration of the elected MLAs in Delhi, to avoid the re-election for Delhi assembly. He clarified that the center is not making any pressure of the Governors appointed by UPA government. He added that it is not true that the center is planning to scrap the Congress government of Himachal as indicated in press. He also said, “NDA government will not disturb any state government elected constitutionally.”
