I am not afraid of the cheap and malicious personal attack launched by the BJP: Virbhadra Singh
Virbhadra Singh, Himachal Chief Minister has said that he was not afraid of the cheap and malicious personal attack launched by the BJP and its comrade-in-arms against him and his family members to smear his image and reputation. Singh said that he had faced such baseless accusations and false cases before and had come out clean on all counts and this time also all wild allegations will fall flat.

Virbhadra Singh said that during the assembly elections, national BJP leaders including Arun Jaitley had personally targeted him during the entire election period and levelled wild and baseless accusations about his Income Tax returns and alleged favours to Ispat Industry.

He said that he always believes in clean and healthy politics and good-governance. He never indulged in politics of vendetta and victimisation in spite of the fact that the BJP people fabricated numerous false cases against him and held baseless inquiries. He said that he came out clean in all these cases.

Dismissing the charges of vendetta by the BJP and other wrong doers, he said that the probes against the misrule and misdeeds of the previous BJP Government were being carried out by the investigating agencies as per law on the basis of the charge-sheet submitted by the Congress Party.

This charge-sheet was prepared and submitted to the President of India by a committee constituted by the AICC, of which he was not even a member. The charge-sheet was later incorporated in the election manifesto of the Congress Party. He said that that he had no personal bias against anybody.

On the formation of the Congress Government in the State, the Election Manifesto of the Congress Party was adopted as the Policy Document of the State Government and the chargesheet was handed over to the State Vigilance Bureau for fair and independent investigation since the Government was bound by responsibility to fulfil the promise made to the people of the State.

The chargesheet contained serious charges of corruption and land scams against P.K. Dhumal, his family members, ministers, others and high profile cases of land deals and change of land use involving Ramdev's Patanjali Yogpeeth, Prashant Bhushan's Educational Trust, HPCA's hotel, Bemloe construction, Annandale area etc.

Singh said that the BJP was foreseeing defeat on all the four seats in the state in the coming parliamentary elections after the drubbing it received in the assembly elections and Mandi by-election. He said that his entire life devoted to the development of the State and welfare of its people was an open book for all.  

He said that the people of the State, whom he had served with all his might and commitment during his public career spanning over 5 decades knew him fully well and have always reposed faith in his integrity and leadership.
