Congress stalwart Virbhadra Singh denied the allegation that he violated land laws to favour his brother-in-law to sell land parcels to realty major DLF for an ultra-luxury housing project in the state.
Singh alleged that it is a part of a smear campaign of Dhumal, Arun Jaitely and Anurag Thakur to malign his image in the run-up to the polls. He said that election should be fought on the issue of development and as BJP leaders are exploring new way to gather votes by maligning others image. However, he warns his distractors with the same way.
Earlier, one big news channel has alleged that as the chief minister from 2003-07, Virbhadra Singh favoured his brother-in-law Arun Sen by granting him permission to sell land to realtor DLF in violation of laws.
