HPCC chief Virbhadra Singh stated that if voted into power, the Congress party will probe all land-related decisions of the Dhumal government. He added that the party would go to the masses to expose the misdeeds of the BJP government rather than have a debate on a common platform.

While chatting with the press personals in Shimla, Congress stalwart dared Chief Minister to execute his announcement from the sources available and advised him to not take any further loans. He said that the BJP was on its way out and the sops being doled out to various sections by Chief Minister for which no provision was made in the budget pointed to the same.

He welcomed Govt decision to raise pay scales on the pattern of Punjab and added that it should have been implemented before. He said people of the state could not be misled. If Dhumal was sincere about protecting the interests of employees, he would have released these benefits which would entail an annual expenditure of Rs 1,000 crore long back or at least provided for the same in the budget. The unending stream announcements and the foundation stone-laying functions reflected his desperation.

Virbhadra Singh also takes a dig at Dhumal regime about the corruption and said that it was not only Congress, but its own people and senior leaders have leveled such allegations against them.
