Dharamsala: The first day of the Himachal Pradesh assembly’s winter session began on a stormy note on Monday with the main opposition BJP staging a walkout, demanding discussion on registration of a disproportionate assets case against Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.

Immediately after the obituary references, the opposition demanded an adjournment motion for discussing the issue related to cases filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the CBI against the chief minister.

“It’s the first time in the history of Himachal Pradesh that an FIR (first information report) is filed against a sitting chief minister,” BJP member Ravinder Ravi said, as the five-day winter session began in this town, some 250 km from state capital Shimla.

Justifying the party’s demand, former minister Rajeev Bindal said the ED and the CBI raided Virbhadra Singh’s premises.

He urged Speaker BBL Butail to allow the adjournment motion and discuss the issue on which the BJP legislature party had given notice.

However, Butail refused the discussion, stating that the matter was sub-judice.

When the speaker disallowed the adjournment motion and discussion, the BJP members started raising slogans.

As the speaker proceeded with the business listed for the day, the BJP lawmakers staged a walkout from the house.

After the walkout, the house continued with the business.

Later talking to reporters, the chief minister said the BJP always makes a strategy so that the house does not run smoothly.

“It’s a clear misuse of members’ rights,” he said, adding that the proceedings in the house will continue despite the opposition boycott.

He said he had not done anything wrong and the matter was pending in court.

He said it was a conspiracy hatched by former chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and his son Anurag Thakur, BJP Lok Sabha member from Hamirpur.

Modi accuses Congress

The ongoing battle between the two largest Indian political parties is intensifying with each passing day. Adding to the same, PM Modi on Thursday said that Rahul Gandhi led Congress party is spreading lies about him through the foreign agencies.

He blamed the Congress for being hesitant to talk on development and always trying to divide the society. He said, “If you analyze last few elections, you will realize how a few political parties have indulged only in dividing societies on religious lines. They give lollipops to a community before elections and then forget them.”
Modi said that this is the working strategy of Congress where they play with the emotions of communities. They act of being sympathetic towards them and then forget about them after the elections.

“They will never give account of their works. They keep indulging in dividing the society. The political purity cannot be established in the country till the Congress culture is finished from the mainstream.” he added.
Slapping Congress for spreading “rampant” lies, Modi alerted the workers not to get trapped by the opposition’s strategies.

“Congress has resorted to rampant lying after a series of defeats in elections. Earlier, the Congress used to spread lies over five to 10 issues they raised. Now out of 50 issues, 40-45 are based on lies,” the Prime Minister said.

Modi did not stop here. He advised his karykartas to hire foreign agencies to deceive the planning of the Congress party. He said that other political parties do not talk about development while BJP fights only on issues. He added, “This was unacceptable to those parties which only concentrated on division. We govern and also fight elections based only on development model.” (IANS)
