Shimla: BJP senior leader and Leader of Opposition Jairam Thakur has questioned the appointment of six Chief Parliamentary Secretaries and termed it a sheer wastage of public money.

Following the appointment of Chief Parliamentary Secretaries, the Leader of Opposition turned to social media and questioned the need for Chief Parliamentary Secretaries and called it a move badly affecting the common people.

“Congress used to target BJP led Govt for taking loans, and now preparing to take a loan of ₹ 3000 crores by passing a proposal to increase the loan limit in the recent winter assembly session, and it seems that the loan is only to meet the expenses of the CPS,” Former Chief Minister quipped.
