Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today blamed some BJP leaders for “vindictive” actions being taken by Enforcement Directorate against him.
“All my properties, whether in Shimla or Rampur Bushahr are my family properties, inherited from my ancestors, and all actions of the ED to attach the properties are politically motivated”, he said in informal talks with mediapersons.
Chief minister also took exception to clashes between the SFI and ABVP in the campus and asked “why these two organisations are involved in clashes?”.
“There seems to be some design behind the clashes as these have occurred on the eve of visit of NAAC team to tarnish the image of the University”, he alleged.
Meanwhile, Vikramaditya Singh, son of the CM and president of the state Youth Congress has strongly condemned the reports in a section of Press that the ED was to seize the assets of Virbhadra Singh.
Terming the reports as misleading, he said “the news is incomplete, hoax and reported deliberately by misrepresenting the fact” and actuated with malafide intention to harm the unimpeachable reputation of his family.
The news reports intentionally not reported that he and his family members including the Chief Minister had already challenged the provisional attachment order of ED before the Delhi High Court, Vikramaditya said.
