Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee chief Kaul Singh Thakur today demanded a White Paper on the grave financial position of the state.
Kaul Singh alleged that the BJP regime had failed on all fronts and its tenure was marked by one scam after another whether it involved the land, forest or liquor mafia. “The Congress demands that a CBI inquiry should be held into the purchase of substandard foodgrains under the PDS and a high-level inquiry into land purchase by HIMUDA at a much higher rate in the Dharampur area of Solan,” he said.
“There are ample cases of violation of Section 118 of the Tenancy and Land Reforms Act where precious land has been given to outsiders and the most glaring example is that of Acharya Balkrishan, an associate of Swami Ramdev, who is not even a citizen of India and is already under the CBI scanner,” he said. He accused the BJP regime of conniving with the builders undertaking a housing project in the Bemloe area of the town.
Kaul Singh Thakur added that the Congress would hold public meetings in all 68 Assembly constituencies to make people aware about the “anti-people decisions” of the BJP regime, misuse of government money and to counter the false propaganda by the BJP regime on discrimination by the UPA government against Himachal.
