Dharamshala, January 13

Refuting the BJP's claim to have the youngest chief minister in Himachal Pradesh, the Congress on Saturday said it had seen younger chief ministers in the state.

Himachal Chief Minister Jairam Thakur is 53-years-old, while Y S Parmar was 45 when he assumed CMs office, Ram Lal was 48, Shanta Kumar was just 42, Virbhadra Singh was 49 and P K Dhumal was 53, senior Congress leader and MLA Asha Kumari said in the 13th Himachal Pradesh Assembly yesterday.

The MLA also slammed the government for not translating the Governor's speech properly during the swearing-in ceremony.

"The translation of the Governor's speech from Hindi to English was also not checked properly," Kumari said. PTI
