Member parliament and president of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) Anurag Thakur on Thursday slammed the chief minister Virbhadra Singh for delay in centrally aided projects to be launched in the state, saying he had no affection for the common masses.

Addressing various public meetings in Nadaun assembly segment on Friday, Thakur said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP, the BJYM's parent organisation) was committed to developing the state and the nation on equal basis.

“There is no question of discriminating with any area on political considerations,” he said.

The BJYM leader said with an aim to provide specialised medical facilities to the people, an “AIIMS-like” institution would come up in the Hamirpur parliamentary constituency. “The decision is final. The name of place would be announced soon,” Thakur added.

The Hamirpur MP also said the chief minister was misinforming the people of state on the issue of the central university campus, saying the central government had already taken a decision to have the campus in Dehra of Kangra district. “The chief minister should stop telling lies to the people on this vital issue otherwise he would lose his credibility,” he said.

The BJP MP further alleged that the present government was “busy in framing false cases” against him and his father and ex chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal.
