Shimla/ June 6
State Congress spokesman Deepak Sharma on Thursday demanded a CBI inquiry into the HPCA hotel construction in Dharamsala, as to who all had invested money in it.
“The state government should take this hotel into the custody so that the truth may come out,” he said.
The Congress spokesman said Thakur should make it clear as to who had invested the money for the constructed for this hotel.
“He should come clean on the issue that whether HPCA is an Association or a company because HPCA was registered in the Kolkata as a Himalayan Player Cricket Association later of it was registered as a company in the Chandigarh,” Sharma said.
He alsp asked Hamirpur MP Anurag Thakur, who is also secretary of Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI), to make his stand clear on the spot fixing in IPL. Sharma said the role of Thakur and senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley was dubious into the issue as they have not come out clearly on the issue, which is turning out to be a serious security issue as well.
He alleged both the BJP leaders were protecting the BCCI chairman Srinivasan and after his side-stepping, they are busy for their own adjustment at important posts in the BCCI. “It is also a big scandal,” he said.
He said Thakur could not clear his stand on the issue of hotel which was constructed in Dharamshala by Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association headed by him. He said this hotel was initially constructed as a hostel for the cricket players, but later on it was converted into a hotel.
