BJP leader and Hamirpur MP Anurag Thakur on Wednesday said that it was not him but the CM Virbhadra Singh who is creating roadblocks in the way of central university. “When the then UPA government sanctioned a CU for the state and based on the recommendations made by site selection committee of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, the then state government headed by Prem Kumar Dhumal allotted the land in Dehra in the favour of the Central University,” he added.
He said that CM should clarify was the then UPA government was also under my control? Isn’t it is the fact that Dehra was chosen after due consideration of forest land and seismic zone of Dharamsala? But after coming to the power CM Virbhadra Singh with his narrow mindset, sent a fresh proposal overriding the report of the site selection committee, sent a fresh proposal of establishing major campus of CU in Dharamsala? Even then the centre respected Virbhadra Singh and MHRD again sent a team to asses both the sites in Dharamsala and Dehra. Committee once again rejected Dharamsala saying this land falls in seismic zone still Virbhadra Singh went ahead showing recalcitrant attitude and gave cabinet approval for establishing a CU in Dharamsala, he added.
In a press statement issued today, MP Anurag Thakur advised Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh to cross check the facts first before issuing preposterous statements in the media. He said that he has never spoken about Central University being shifted to Manipur or Tripura. Virbhadra Singh is a habitual liar.
“I am proud that I am MP from the BJP led by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In the BJP, everyone is equal and everyone is heard out including the opposition. Biggest example of this fact site selection committee sent by the MHRD again on the request of the CM Virbhadra Singh. But it is the Congress Party which lacks inner democracy and leader at the national and state level blindly follow Gandhi family and Virbhadra Singh. Country has already shown the door to the Congress party nationally and Himachal Pradesh would follow the suit soon.
