Dharamsala: Alleging that Himachal Pradesh government has sold out more than 2 lakh kanal of land to non Himachalies, state unit of Congress on Saturday said that after coming to power it would revert all such decisions.

"Himachal government lead by Dhumal has sold out more than 2 lakh kanal of land to non Himachalies," Thakur Koul Singh, President of Himachal Congress said.

BJP government of Himachal has also given 100 bighas of prime land in Solan district to yoga guru Ram Dev on throw away price, Singh alleged.

Land was donated to Himachal by Raja Yadvinder Singh of Punjab for development of a Children Park, he added.

"All such deals where the Dhumal government has allotted or sold land ignoring the Section 118 of land reform and tenancy Act of the state, which prevents people of other states to purchase land in state, will be reverted" Singh said.

Once Ramdev jumps into the political arena, he will realise his worth, the state unit chief said.

On Sunday state Congress is staging a conference (Mission 2011) at Palampur, 45 kms from Dharamsala, to plan its road map for next year Assembly election.
