BJP legislator party said that FIR against Virbhadra Singh has been registered for the allegations leveled against him when he was steel minster in the UPA government and at the time he was forced to resign from the ministry. BJP leaders claimed that all cases, namely filing of revised income tax returns wherein income from apple orchards was inflated 15 times, cores of rupees taken from V Chandershaker and deposited directly in the bank accounts and purchase of shares in Tarini company or purchase of farmhouse in Delhi pertain to the period when UPA was in power, BJP leaders further alleged.

He also blamed Congress leaders for misleading the common people over the court decision of granting any kind of relief for him. He claimed that Virbhadra Singh has sought the relief of quashing the FIR but the court refuse to do the same and even asked premier investigating agency to continue with the probe.
