Congress in Himachal Pradesh is in final stages of preparing a "chargesheet" against departments of all ministers in the BJP-ruled state barring one.
Shimla: Congress in Himachal Pradesh is in final stages of preparing a "chargesheet" against departments of all ministers in the BJP-ruled state barring one.
The "chargesheet" being finalised would be submitted to the party high command and simultaneously released in Delhi and Shimla on the day it is submitted to the President of India, chairman of Congress charge-sheet committee GS Bali told reporters here today.
The only department which does not figure in the chargesheet is Rural Development and Panchayati Raj, a portfolio held by Jai Ram Thakur, he said without giving reasons as to why he was being spared.
"The chargesheet is supported by affidavits and documentary proofs and the names of the entire cabinet including chief minister and some bureaucrats figure prominently in the charge sheet," he said.
The document running into 1000 pages includes cases of irregularities and acts of omission and commission during 50 months of BJP rule and glaring cases of violation of section 118 of tenancy and land reforms act have been mentioned, he said.
Though the chargesheet was ready, it would be subjected to judicial scrutiny before being submitted to party high command, Bali said.
The issue of purchase of excess land by several private universities and scams in the health, Food and Civil Supplies, HIMUDA, Home and Transport figures in the chargesheet. Inputs for the "charge sheet" have been provided by NGOs, individuals and media while some information had been extracted through RTI, he added.
The chargesheet would prove the allegation of Congress that "Himachal is on sale under BJP rule and land mafia has been patronised by the government", he said.
