Virbhadra Singh denies graft charges amid BJP’s chorus for his resignation

New Delhi/January 1
Amid growing chorus from BJP on his resignation, Himachal’s Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today refuted opposition party’s allegations and said that there is no truth in allegations of taking bribe from a power company to grant extension for their power project in the state.
As per reports, Singh today denied of having taken bribe from a power company to grant extension for their power project and presented his version on the whole issue to Congress’s General Secretary and In-charge Himachal Ambika Soni.
Singh, who couldn’t meet Party President Sonia Gandhi to explain his stand on the issue, had reportedly left Delhi without meeting her as AICC Vice President Rahul Gandhi was also not in Delhi. While his wife and Congress MP from Mandi Pratibha Singh also met senior party leaders at AICC headquarters in Delhi to explain her position on allegation leveled against her.
On other hand, BJP, upping ante against Himachal CM, filed a complaint with Indian Election Commission and its Hamirpur MP and BJYM president Anurag Thakur demanded resignation on bribery charges and submitted a memorandum to Election Commission to take action against him and his wife for hiding information in their election affidavits.
Thakur dared Rahul Gandhi to take action against Singh to prove that he is serious about dealing with corruption and demanded that HP CM should resign from his post immediately.
