Chief minister Virbhadra Singh on Friday said that his government would not succumb to “any tactics” of the opposition Bharatiya Janata party (BJP).
Talking to reporters in his chamber in the Vidhan Sabha complex, Virbhadra Singh said that the ruling Congress has decided not to react on opposition's behavior inside the house. “BJP's behavior is shameless and they have put rules of House at stake, but we will not succumb to any tactics,” said Singh.
The CM also accused former chief minister and leader of opposition Prem Kumar Dhumal of behaving immaturely. He said that Dhumal was feeling the heat of inquiries initiated by the state vigilance bureau against him. “This all is being done to divert attention from their misdeeds,” he added.
Replying to the allegations levelled by the BJP against him in the House, Virbhadra Singh said they have no proof about their allegations. “These are allegations only and no court has proved me guilty. The people of the state know me as well as Dhumal,” said Virbhadra Singh. He termed the opposition's protest as signs of frustration on the part of BJP leadership.
Asked if the government propioses to bring any resolution to prove its majority in the House, the Chief Minister said the Congress government has no need to pass any resolution to prove its majority. “We have a clear majority in the House,” he said while adding that besides the Congress legislators, independent legislators are also supporting his government from the very first day after the results of the assembly elections came in.
