Dharamshala: BJP MLA and former Himachal Pradesh Assembly Deputy Speaker Rikhi Ram Kaundal, booked in a case under the Prevention of Corruption Act, Wednesday accused the Virbhadra Singh government of conspiring against him.

Kaundal was booked by State Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau, Bilaspur, yesterday under the Prevention of Corruption Act.

"The case registered against me by the vigilance and anti-corruption department is a part of a conspiracy hatched by my opponents and the state government to defame me," he said.

Kaundal, elected from Jhanduta constituency of Bilaspur district, said his opponents were running a vicious campaign against him for the last five years.
