Lashing out at the opposition Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) for making unwarranted malicious propaganda against him and the government, chief minister Virbhadra Singh on Sunday said that his government was committed for all-round development of the state.
Presiding over a function, organised by Sarv Kalyankari Sanstha at Baddi, he said that he was against the politics of vendetta and mudslinging.
Singh said, "The probe into the misdeeds of the previous BJP government is being done in accordance with the charges leveled in chargesheet filed by his party during the regime of PK Dhumal."
Now when the law was taking its own course, the BJP leaders were resorting to malicious propaganda against him, he added.
He said that he was not against the game of cricket, but he would not allow vested interest of opposition to grab prime land worth crore of rupees in the name of cricket. State's cricket association had become a private company of Anurag and his coterie.
On the occasion, he also said Baddi would be soon connected with Chandigarh by a rail link in future and his government would bear 50 % of the total cost of proposed `300 crore projects.
He said that his government would also ensure strengthening of basic amenities in Baddi to facilitate the entrepreneurs and the local populace.
Earlier, Singh inaugurated a blood donation camp, distributed prizes to meritorious students, and provided wheel chairs and financial assistance to needy people.
Forest minister Thakur Singh Bharmouri, industries minister Mukesh Agnihotri, chief parliamentary secretary ID Lakhanpal, Hardeep Baba, Paramjit Singh Pammi, Kuldeep Pathania and others were also present on the occasion.
