Virbhadra blames Dhumal for FIR



New Delhi: Union steel minister Virbhadra Singh today accused Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal of being behind the FIR lodged against him and his wife in a graft case. “It is a 20-year-old case. Dhumal is the person who is behind it,” he told reporters here.

Earlier, the Union minister had termed the FIR as a “cheap gimmick which shall collapse under its own weight”.
Meanwhile, the Lok Sabha was adjourned today after members of the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) created an uproar over corruption cases against union minister Virbhadra Singh and the son of former home minister Buta Singh.

  1. In my childhood days, I used to think that a rich person in politics do not require corrupt means and can serve the state with honesty. But I was wrong. These politicians need even more resources to sustain the level for future and hence more degree of corruption is required as they fail to carry on other honest/hard working ventures.

    This is true to this person who ruled Himachal like an emperor since long. He has evolved a different set of social ethos in Himachal. People were engulfed in governmental web in such a way that the mercy of king was direly needed by everyone. This gave the birth to sycophancy levels that touched new heights over last few decades. Fear stricken people assimilated the changing environment and put most of their energy to gain an access to ‘Darbar’ rather than doing their work with full efficiency.

    Perhaps everyone understand the truth of CD, but burning effigies and firecrackers are just to figure in pictures so that the king duly reward them with the loyalty bonus in coming future.

    Whatever be the party in power, one must develop a courage to call spade a spade. Please do not justify the corruption, whether it is of Rs. 10000 by BJP MP or lakhs by this so called ‘Fakir_Himachal Takdeer’. Don’t deceive yourself by not accepting the tested audio visual clips. Show a zero tolerance to corruption. Himachal Pradesh has the best potential to become a developed state within developing country.

    Lastly, full appreciation to vigilance department of Himachal Pradesh for not just providing daily headlines to newspapers but showing courage to catch corrupt people red handed almost daily across the ‘Himachal Devbhoomi’. I have seen such courage for the first time in Himachal. At least it is certain that leadership in government and in the department is all certain about objectives. Keep it up…

  2. To err is human. To blame it in others is politics! Keep up while the state of affairs(pun intended) is bad…keep going to the centre with a begging bowl…never rise on your own feet…keep voting back visionless politicians just because they belong to …take your pick!
