Himachal Congress chief Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu is facing flak for criticising former chief minister , Prem Kumar Dhumal and his son Anurag Thakur . Opposition BJP has accused him of misusing his office to get government contracts and amassing property woth crores of rupees.
” Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee President is basically a contractor who is misusing his office to get government contracts.His party men are denying that he not a contractor. We ask if he is not a contractor then how he has earned property worth crores of rupees. We demand a high level inquiry into the matter,” Ganesh Dutt ,BJP spokesperson said.
BJP said that the Congress president and his family members purchased a large piece of land measuring 700 Kanals in Hamirpur district on March 30,2012 besides owning shares in two construction companies named S S Constructions and R S Constructions .
“The construction companies in question were also raided by CBI officials for irregularities but the matter seems to have been hushed up. The Congress president should clarify and reveal the source of money which was used to purchase the huge chunk of land and shares in the construction companies which are patronised by him,” Dr Rajeev Saijal, Vice President , BJP questioned.
Himachal Congress chief was attacked by the BJP leaders afer he had accused former chief miniser Prem Kumar Dhumal and his son Anurag Thakur of commercializing the politics and selling the interests of Himachal Pradesh to the outsiders. He had also accused Anurag Thakur that he has nothing to do with Hamirpur LS constituency and he is always busy in Dubai and other foreign countries.
Reacting to BJP’s allegations Congress which appeared defensive after the counter allegations denied that Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu owns shares in two construction companies and said that the land was purchased as per the law.
” The land in question has been purchased within the law with legal money earned with hard work. Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu has nothing to do with R S Constructions and S S Constructions. BJP is indulging in mud slinging as its leaders Prem Kumar Dhumal and his son Anurag Thakur had formed a company called BAD ( B stands for Dr Rajeev Bindal former cabinet minister who is accused of land deals worth crores of rupees, A for Anurag Thakur and D for Prem Kumar Dhumal. They misused cricket and education for personal gains and sold the interests of the state ,” Dr Kailash Parashar, Spokesperson , HPCC said.
The trading of allegations both by BJP and Congress has confined the politics to Hamirpur as both HPCC President and former chief minister belong to this district. Both the parties seem least bothered about their position in the bye election in Mandi LS constituency where polls will take place on June 23.
