Taking a dig at the central government, former chief minister and leader of opposition, Prem Kumar Dhumal on Friday said a tension was prevailing between bureaucracy and government in the country and the mistrust is growing by the day.


Dhumal was at palampur to inaugurate a workshop of party.

“The officers are under pressure. This is evident from the retired Indian Administrative Services (IAS) officer, CP Parkeh's remark in which he raised questions over Prime Minister's role in the Coalgate scam,” said Dhumal while addressing a press conference adding that some officers have shown the courage to speak against the government.

“The development works have come to a standstill in the country,” said Dhumal.

Replying to a query over controversy surrounding Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA), Dhumal said the government was creating hurdles in the development of cricket in the state.
