Hamirpur(HP), March 30: BJP MP and BJYM president, Anurag Thakur on Tuesday, March 29 downplayed the humiliating defeat of BJP in Dharamsala Municipal Corporation polls and said that it was not a referendum against the BJP as local bodies elections are fought on local issues.
"If the Congress leaders feel that it was a referendum against the BJP and party had lost base in Kangra district, the chief minister should hold snap polls to Vidhan Sabha to prove the popularity of the party," he said.
Thakur claimed that Congress party was a divided house and it was evident from the fact that Chief Minister, Virbhadra Singh had to meet Congress party Supremo, Sonia Gandhi to clarify his position time and again.
He said something surprising was on cards in the state and it would come to surface in coming days.
Talking about the attachment of property of Chief Minister by the enforcement directorate, he said that it was strange thing that while in most of parts of India farmers and orchardists committed suicide due to bad weather, there was only one man in India whose horticulture income rose steadily and that was none that Virbhadra Singh.
