Shimla, Apr 29: Himachal Youth Congress president and Vikramaditya Singh, today termed as "false" the allegation of corruption and disproportionate assets against his father and chief minister Virbhadra Singh saying the Finance Ministry is "using" Enforcement Directorate in the matter.
The Finance Ministry, headed by Arun Jaitley, is using the ED to institute a false investigation against the Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister, he told reporters here. Vikramaditya accused the Centre of destabilising Harish Rawat-led Uttrakhand government and said Congress will emerge victorious in this "political gimmick".
He also slammed Leader of Opposition in the Assembly, Prem Kumar Dhumal, of making callous statements about the early polls in the state and said the Congress government was strong and stable and would not only complete its full term but also return to power again in 2017.
He said the party's victory in the recently concluded municipal corporation polls in Dharamshala and the Panchayati Raj elections was an indication that Congress is on a firm footing in the state. The members of Youth Congress will tour all five assembly constituencies in Hamirpur District from May 12 to May 20 to express gratitude to the public, who have overwhelmingly voted in the favour of the Congress, he said.
On the occasion, he apologised for the cancellation of 'Congress Yuva Maha sammelan' and said that the event will soon be organized at Paddal ground in Mandi.
