Anurag Thakur should not play childish : Ministers


By : Arvind Sharma

Urban Development and TCP minister Sudhir Sharma and CPS Neeraj Bharti have advised MP Anurag Thakur to refrain from childish activities as no person could be placed above law. When PM Dr. Manmohan Singh was ready to place himself before any enquiry then MP Anurag Thakur could not have been an exception. Without being summoned for any investigation, he should not have entered the premises of vigilance office in Dharamshala and stage any political drama.

Both these ministers were reacting today in Dharamshala over the high voltage drama staged by Anurag Thakur after reaching the office of state vigilance and anti corruption bureau at Dharamshala to join the investigations even as the authorities concerned had asked him to appear on October 31st. They asked him to understand that he was not above law and was himself involved in law making process and advised him not to play immature and irresponsible. Him being a son of the former chief minister did not place him above law.

Sudhir Sharma and Neeraj Bharti said that due to some unavoidable reasons Anurag Thakur could not be summoned on scheduled dates of October 22nd and 24th and was directed to appear on October 31st before the vigilance office, Dharamshala but instead of respecting the law, he made mockery of the system along with his supporters.

All this showed he had no respect for law. He had no right to turn a government office into political arena and shouting of slogans at this place marred his own image. All these gimmicks were not going to help him in any manner. It would have been better if he had celebrated his birthday in a decent way and his respect for law would have raised himself in the eyes of the people.
