Shimla: Further mounting pressure on the Congress led Himachal Pradesh government, the BJP on Sunday submitted a "charge sheet" to President Pranab Mukherjee demanding ouster of Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh over graft allegations and also demanded CBI probe into the matter.
After the BJP submitted a 28-page "charge sheet" against Singh to the Governor on December 25 last, they have now given the "charge sheet" to the President.
Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition in Vidhan Sabha and former Chief Minister P K Dhumal today lashed out at the state government for neglecting development works and unleashing political vendetta against BJP workers and their kin.
Accusing the government of failure to implement poll promises, Dhumal claimed the Congress government has betrayed the people during its past one year regime.
Speaking to reporters at Nahan, Dhumal said the state government has failed to even recover Rs 4,250 crores awarded by Supreme Court on account of state`s share in power projects under Bhakra beas management Board (BBMB).
"We demand CBI inquiry into the allegations but the Congress wants that matter be referred to Lokayukta so that Congress can buy more time for manipulations," Dhumal said, adding the BJP would not rest till an enquiry is ordered.
He charged the state government with pursuing anti-people policies like effecting 30 per cent hike in bus fares, raising the prices of food grains and cooking oil distributed through PDS and also reduced the quantity of ration under PDS.
