Former Himachal Minister and BJP leader Roop Singh Thakur on Friday accused Chief Minister VB Singh and former Union Communications Minister Sukh Ram -- who has recently returned to Congress -- of entering into "opportunistic" alliances to achieve their "selfish" goals.

"While Chief Minister VB Singh desperately needed the help of Sukh Ram for his wife Pratibha, who is contesting as a Congress candidate from Mandi, the former communications minister needed the blessings of the Chief Minister to secure the political career of his son Anil Sharma," he said in a statement here today.

He wondered how the two leaders who were sworn enemies earlier and making serious allegations against each other had now joined hands.

Thakur asked both the leaders to explain to the people whether the statements and accusations made by them against each other earlier were true or the statements made after "homecoming" were correct.
