The Himachal Pradesh council of ministers decided to convene five day Monsoon session starting from August 22.
A meeting of Himachal Pradesh Cabinet was held under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today. It was decided to hold monsoon session of H.P. Vidhan Sabha with effect from 22nd August to 27th August, 2016 having five sittings in total.
The Cabinet passed a resolution reposing full faith in the leadership of Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh. It was noted that the clamour by Members of BJP for the resignation of Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh is not only absurd but also exposes their utter disregard for the Rule of Law.
Instead of showing respect and trust in the law and justice system of the country, some leaders of BJP, having no popular support seek to circumvent the legal process to dislodge a democratically elected popular Chief Minister. It is quite obvious that they have realized that it would not be possible for them to attain power through democratic and electoral means.
The Cabinet noted that cases in question pertain merely to financial returns and despite the Income Tax Department already ceased of the matter, with the sole objective of harassing Mr. Singh, the cases are being investigated by three central agencies namely Income Tax Department, CBI and ED which was highly condemnable.
The only sane and mature response should be to allow the law to take its own established course. Attempts to subvert the legal process and to destabilise the popular democratically elected government are condemnable and would be strongly resisted by the people of the State.
