Allegations against former Cong ministers to be probed: BJP

A "charge sheet" alleging acts of omission and commission against Congress ministers in the previous government in Himachal Pradesh which was submitted by the BJP to the governor would be probed, the saffron party's chief spokesperson Randhir Sharma said today.

The law would take its course and a probe would be conducted in an impartial manner without any political vendetta, he added.

Hitting out at the Congress for targeting the 45-day old BJP government headed by Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, Sharma said the opposition party was not able to reconcile to the reality that it had been ousted from power.

Responding to opposition charge that the chief minister was frequently visiting Delhi, he said Congress leaders should not forget that their party chief minister visited Delhi in connection with his cases time and again and "used the state helicopter for his personal use and evaded answer regarding his visits for three years".

Thakur visited Delhi in connection with official meetings on issues like GST, special financial assistance to the state, clearing the railway line projects and restoration of industrial package, he added.

He defended appointment of RSS men on key positions, claiming that they were intelligent, hard-working and honest and also justified the large-scale transfers of employees, mantaining that it was a normal process after a change in the government.
