Irked by the clean chit given to Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh’s son Vikramaditya Singh over violence at the BJP office allegedly by Congress workers, the opposition on Monday refused to join the magisterial probe ordered into the case.
“The statement made by Chief Minister in the media accusing the BJP of violence at peaceful protest of the youth Congress clearly indicates the outcome of the magisterial probe. Which inquiry officer will dare to probe the role of Chief Minister’s son or give an adverse finding? ” said Trilok Jamwal, BJP’s secretary.
Jamwal said since the BJP has already approached Governor Kalyan Singh demanding a CBI probe or a judicial inquiry into the matter, there is no reason why it should join the magisterial probe.
Meanwhile, HPCC president Sukhwinder Sukhu has sought report from party’s vice-president Harsh Mahajan and General secretary Harsh Vardhan Chauhan in the case.
“The party must gather facts as who was really at fault and why a protest turned violent if it was proposed to be a peaceful demonstration at the BJP’s office.The incident is deeply regrettable and must be curbed,” said Sukhu.
