Union health minister Jagat Prakash Nadda on Monday charged the Congress high command of being a beneficiary of the corruption done by Himachal Pradesh chief minister Virbhadra Singh.
He said the state wanted to know how much money the Congress high command had got from his corruption. “People also want to know the reason behind the silence of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi on the corruption case against Virbhadra Singh,” the Union minister added.
“Congress’ failure to oust Singh has exposed its double standards,” he said, adding that Congress had been sheltering the corrupt and corruption in the past also.
He also claimed that Himachal Pradesh had been bearing the brunt of ineffectiveness of the Congress government. “The Virbhadra government is in a coma and Congress high command is responsible for it,” Nadda said, adding that the funds being released by Centre for development were not being used properly.
