BJP veteran leader and party candidate from Kangra Shanta Kumar has condemned the action of the Congress government against leader of opposition Prem Kumar Dhumal in the HPCA land allotment case.

In a press conference at Chamba, Shanta Kumar termed the government action as political revenge and hoping that this would cost the Congress dear in the elections. He said that Virbhadra Singh is a wise leader and it wasn’t expected from him.

Shanta Kumar wondered at the decision of government as there were other cases of serious nature lying pending with the government for the past many years. He said that initiation of land case against HPCA in view of the general election is wrong.
