Himachal Pradesh BJP today insisted on its demand for Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh’s resignation on “moral grounds” and claimed the ongoing CBI and ED probe against him is “legally tenable and justified”.
“Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, who is facing serious charges of corruption, has no moral right to continue in office and the ongoing CBI and ED enquiry against him and his family members is legally tenable and justified,” state BJP chief Satpal Singh Satti said.
“The Chief Minister is facing serious charges of corruption and the investigating agencies are grilling him. He should resign on moral grounds if even an iota of morality is left in him,” he said.
Singh was today questioned by CBI for the second consecutive day in connection with a case of alleged disproportionate assets against him.
Satti alleged that the Congress government in the state has nothing to do with development and Singh is consuming most of his time in “shuttling between Shimla and Delhi in connection with the cases against him”.
