BJP walks out of HP Assembly over CM's remarks
Shimla, Aug 24 (UNI) For the second time in three days, the BJP today staged a walkout from the Himachal Pradesh Assembly after Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said the previous BJP government that had surpassed all limits of political victimisation and corruption had no right to raise these issues in the House.
''Now that I have listened to your irrelevant issues and discussion, you (the BJP members) should have the patienet to listen to me,'' the Chief Minister said, on being interrupted by former chief minister and leader of the BJP group P K Dhumal, while replying to the discussion on law and order.
Enraged over the Chief Minister's remarks, the BJP members staged a walkout from the House for the second time since the Assembly began four day ago.
Continuing with his reply after the BJP members staged a walkout, Mr Singh said the walkout was pre-meditated, while giving a detailed account of how he was politically victimised and persecuted during the BJP rule.
''If I pay back even one per cent of the political victimisation perpetrated on me by the previous Dhumal Government, as interest, they would not be able to stay in Himachal. But I do not believe in post mortem,'' he asserted.
He said the previous BJP government had fabricated cases against him and misused the official machinery, but none of the cases could stand scrutiny of law and was given a clean chit not only by the CBI but various other courts.
