Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former chief minister, Prem Kumar Dhumal, has slammed the government for giving a "clean chit" to Youth Congress (YC) leader Vikramaditya Singh when a probe into the clashes between YC and BJP workers was still on.

Addressing party workers at Sujanpur Tihra on Saturday, Dhumal said the Congress government was "anti-people in general and anti-opposition (parties) in particular".

"We would not sit silent until justice is done to the affected persons and the BJP," Dhumal said, adding that more than 12 BJP workers were injured in the clashes that took place on January 29.

A magisterial probe into the incident on Friday said it had failed to find out which of the two parties was to blame for the clashes, but gave a clean chit to Vikramaditya, who is the chief minister's son.

Dhumal said the BJP is in the process of holding state wide processions and rallies against the incident. Pavan Rana, BJP's state organising secretary, was also present.

Dhumal reiterated his party's demand of holding a CBI probe into the incident "to bring out the truth".

"The way the government is working, a reign of terror is prevailing in the minds of the people," he said.

Earlier, the party took out a procession through various streets of the Sujanpur Tihra raising slogans against the Congress government.

Dhumal urged party workers to go door-to-door to promote the BJP.
