State Shiv Sena levels corruption allegations against Health minister

Himachal Shiv Sena has leveled serious corruption allegations against Health Minister Kaul Singh Thakur. State Shiv Sena spokesperson Brij Lal alleged that Kaul Singh has illegally rented his Hira Nagar residence to NHPC Ltd. Co. for 10 years. He claimed that as per the lease deed of Vidhan Sabha, he cannot use it for the business purpose and if he found to do so the lease agreement would be cancelled. Shiv Sena claimed that as per the agreement between Kaul Singh Thakur and NHPC Ltd. Co, Kaul Singh has earned Rs. 59,344 per month from 15-07-2003 to 14-07-2008 and now getting Rs. 61,261 per month from 15-07-2008 to 14-07-2013.

Shiv Sena Spokesperson claimed that Health Minister has hid this income from election commission as he did not reveal it in his affidavit, while filing his nomination. Shiv Sena has demanded probe and is demanding Kaul Singh’s resignation from the post.

However, Kaul Singh has ruled out these allegations and termed it to tarnish his image.
