The BJP has criticised state Congress president Virbhadra Singh for charging the Dhumal led state government with misusing funds and state machinery to promote electoral prospects in a complaint to the Election Commission.

BJP general secretary Ram Swaroop Sharma said that the Congress leader was unable to digest the achievements of the BJP regime on the development front. Sharma said Virbhadra Singh as a Union Minister in UPA Govt did not raise his voice against the raw deal being handed out to the state by the Center government.

He said the Congress leader was removed from the Cabinet on charges of corruption, yet the high command handed the reins of the party to him. He added that instead of looking at its own UPA Govt corruption charges, including ‘coalgate’ 2G spectrum, Commonwealth Game scandal, and Congress leader is trying to divert electorates’ attention from it trying to malign Dhumal’s Govt prior poll.
