Shimla : Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister, Virbhadra Singh said that need of the hour was to follow the path of Mahatma Gandhi, who believed that politics was incomplete without service to mankind and helping poor. He said that path to politics was through service to humanity.

He said that since 1962 he was in Politics and had devoted 53 years in ethical politics. He praised former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajapayee for his statesmanship and principled politics and said that the standard of Politics had gone to lowest ebb now-a-days.

He said that there should be decorum in assemblies and making remarks and shouting slogans in assembly was a new practice by the present opposition. He said that former Chief Minister, Prem Kumar Dhumal had changed the ethical values in assembly and advised the BJP leaders to refrain from such activities.

Virbhadra Singh said that the raid on the residence of sitting Chief Minister was a blot in political history of the State initiated by BJP leaders in unison with the Central leaders on the day of marriage of his daughter.

“I need not to worry of any raid or enquiry as my income tax returns was at various stages with Income Tax tribunal and in Delhi High court”, he said.

Singh said that the infamous Compact Disc (CD) case had exposed the intention of BJP leaders and the Supreme Court of India gave him clean chit.

The Chief Minister said that he was not against HPCA, but HPCA should get it registered under the co-operative act and should function democratically with voting rights and members from the State itself.  He said that the dirty blame game started by Dhumals was not in better interest of the State and the welfare of people.

“I won’t allow the property of the State to be misused till I am alive and it is because of this the Dhumals were uncomfortable and were trying to oust me from politics,” he said.

The Chief Minister also distributed Hamir Gaurav and Shane-Himachal awards to those who dedicated themselves in service of mankind and for excelling in various activities including sports and academics. 

He assured of Wi-Fi facility in Hamirpur town, assured for Youth hostel at appropriate place and directed to locate appropriate land.
