BJP legislator from Rohru Khushi Ram Balnatah again targeted Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal as he accused him of discriminating against certain areas in development on regional considerations, which leaves him with no moral authority to continue in office.

Balnatah, who has been served a notice by the party for seeking leadership change in Himachal, today hit out at Dhumal for ignoring needs of the people of Rohru. He alleged that the Chief Minister virtually turned a deaf ear to issues being faced by people of Rohru.

Balnatah accused that the Chief Minister had not fulfilled a single announcement that he made at the Himachal Day function at Rohru in 2010. He stated that the announcements made by him with regard to shifting of the Sabzi Mandi to a new site, completion of car parking, construction of the Rohru Bus Stand and a bridge at Bakhirna have yet to start.

Khushi Ram Balnatah, who wanted to fight assembly poll from Kasumpti segment after Rohru reserved for the Scheduled Caste under the recent delimitation process, was reportedly ignored by the party and now reports are coming that he could contest from Kasumpti on the HLP ticket.
