Some Cong men faithful to person, not party: CM

Our Correspondent

KULLU, SEPTEMBER 12

Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said that some Congressmen now days were faithful to a person and not to a party. 

While addressing a gathering at Sainj in Banjar Assembly segment of this district today, he said, “Nowadays, those who do flattery are nominated to top posts”.

The Chief Minister said earlier the office-bearers or even the party presidents were elected right from block level, to district and to state level. Elections were held for the post of president of All-India Congress Committee and the working committees but this trend has been discarded now.

He said that the party ticket won’t be issued to those who appear all of a sudden with his image on the banner or a poster. He said, “I know in and out of everyone and even of those who try to flatter me. Only the deserving would get the tickets.”

Commenting on the issue in which the name of Transport Minister GS Bali appeared in the fake list of BJP candidates for Himachal that went viral on social media recently, the Chief Minister said that Bali was free to go anywhere. The minister had later stated that nothing can be said about the future.

The Chief Minister later inaugurated and laid foundation stones of various development projects in Banjar subdivision. 

Earlier, while addressing a public meeting at Bajaura, the Chief Minister said he himself wanted to retire from active politics but Congress people were persuading him to lead them and fight in the field. He said that the announcements made by late minister Karan Singh would be fulfilled. He dedicated a large number of development works and made many announcements at Bajaura as well.
