Congress stalwart Virbhadra Singh demonstrated his political strength during a “Parivartan Rally” at Jawali, where thousands of people welcomed him. Many present and former MLAs were present at the rally. The rally is being considered significant as it comes after Congress activists from the state met AICC general secretary in Delhi urging him to bring back Virbhadra Singh into the state politics to oust the BJP government from power in the coming Assembly elections.
The “Parivartan Rally” was organised by the local unit of the block Congress. The Union Minister gave a clarion call to the people of the state to oust the Dhumal government in the state in the Aassembly poll. While addressing the rally Virbhadra Singh blamed Govt for sheltering corrupts leaders and also criticises for framing congress supporters in wrong cases. He said
“This government has tried to frame me in false cases and has resorted to witch-hunt against Congress-supported elected representatives of panchayati raj institutions, creating a bad precedent in the state politics. I have never been bogged down by such political gimmicks. I have always got a clean chit from the judiciary in cases registered against me. The government is knee-deep in corruption and scams. A number of ministers and ruling BJP MLAs are involved in scams,”
Virbhadra Singh criticised Dhumal government for playing political gimmicks by launching a move to divide Kangra, the biggest and most significant district in the state, by carving out more districts from it, he ridiculed that the Chief Minister wanted his native Hamirpur district as the biggest district in the state.
