BJP youth wing protests against Himachal CM in front of Rahul's house

New Delhi, Dec.31: The Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) youth wing, the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, on Tuesday protested in front of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's house here, condemning Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, who has been accused of graft.


The protestors gathered in front of Rahul's 12, Tughlak Lane residence, and raised anti-Congress slogans. Some even tried to cross the steel and iron barricades.

The protestors led by BJP leader and BJYM president Anurag Thakur, demanded action against Virbhadra Singh.

As the situation got out of control, police resorted to a baton charge and used water cannons to disperse the protestors. Some protestors were detained and were taken to a nearby police station.

"We will keep on cornering him on this issue. We will definitely take Virbhadra Singh's resignation. He got 7 crore rupees in exchange for a power project to a company and also received lakhs of shares from the company," said Thakur.

"Afterwards Rahul Gandhi poses for photograph with him. We condemn this and demand action from him," he added.

On Monday, BJP leader Arun Jaitley accused Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh of being involved in cases three cases of corruption one of which involved the owner of a private company.

"In 2002, hydropower projects were allotted to a few companies in Himachal Pradesh. Out of them Venture Energy and Technology Private Limited defaulted in the project execution, due to which their contract was cancelled. Later, they were given an extension but the project was never made," said Jaitley

"The owner of the company Vanshri Vakamula Chandrashekar got another extension, when Virbhadra Singh became the Chief Minister again a year ago. Singh got an extension of ten months from the cabinet for Chandrashekar, immediately after which Mr. Chandrashekar paid Singh and his wife Pratibha Singh a sum of one crore fifty thousand and two crores respectively," he said.

He claimed that the same money was invested in a new company opened by Mr. Chandrashekar called Taarini Enterprise Private Limited, through which, Singh's wife, his son and daughter became its shareholders.

"I can almost say without a fear of contradiction, that, in the last few years the kind of corruption cases I have seen, there is nothing more of an open and shut case than this.

Everything is on record and I have also written a detailed letter with voluminous documents of all these incidents," he said.
