Congress leaders of the district on Saturday asked the union minister of state for finances and corporate affairs, Anurag Thakur, the status of the Una-Hamirpur railway link construction work related to which Thakur had been making statements for last ten years.

Party spokesman Rajinder Rana, MLA from Sujanpur and Prem Kaushal, said latest reports had revealed that there was nothing concrete related to this project and the survey work had been completely stalled.

The Congress leaders said that the man who has been claiming that the railway link would become a reality in the coming years should elaborate on when the survey work would start and how much money had been released by the central government for the same.

They alleged that Thakur was misguiding people of Una and Hamirpur district and urged people not to be fooled by him.

Congress leaders once again raised the issue of allotment of land for the cricket stadium at Dharamshala. They asked Thakur to clarify in whose name was the land alloted –––Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association or Himachal Players Cricket Association.

    If there is something that stands out in the rebellion led by Eknath Shinde and his predecessors like Chhagan Bhujbal, Narayan Rane and Raj Thackeray, it is the way in which the Shiv Sena leadership and even the ordinary Shiv Sainik responded to the crisis. If in the past the grassroots workers rallied around Balasaheb Thackeray, Sena leaders today admit to a virtual paralysis that has set in the party following the mass desertions led by Eknath Shinde.
