Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today again dismisses the demand of creating new district in the state. Singh, while addressing a public meeting at Darang, said the state has sufficient number of districts as such and there was no need of creating new districts.
Veteran Congress leader claimed the crating new district would be a sheer wastage of public money and would only put unnecessary pressure on the state exchequer.

The Chief Minister also blamed the BJP for dividing Kangra and other districts during its regime without any prudence. He said
“such steps could have been damaging to the State as these were not based on the administrative needs but on political avarice”
