The BJP will soon initiate a “chargesheet pe charcha” on the issues figuring in the charge sheet prepared by the party against the state government’s acts of commission and omission in its four-year rule.

Such discussions will be held at various levels, including the mandal and booth levels, to educate the masses about the various acts of corruption involving the state government. As many as 40,000 copies of the charge sheet will also be published in the party’s monthly magazine and distributed widely.

This decision was taken at the state BJP’s two-day executive meeting which began at Baddi today. It was also decided to compile district and mandal-level charge sheets enlisting the corruption prevailing at the local levels within a time-bound manner.

A decision to hold Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally in Himachal after the polls in five Vidhan Sabha state was also taken.

Addressing party leaders, Shrikant Sharma, BJP’s state in-charge and national Secretary, said it was time to rid Himachal of the Congress which had provided the most corrupt government in the country and belied the hopes of the people.

He urged the party activists to gear up for this mission. The Congress and other opposition parties were opposing demonetization tooth and nail. He said the Congress was trying to mislead the masses on this issue.

Lauding the two-and-a-half year stint of Prime Minister Narendra Modi he said his progressive policies had helped improve the country’s image globally and Pakistan has been isolated internationally. He enlisted scams of the UPA government and said Modi, on the contrary, had given a corruption-free government where as many as 197 public welfare schemes had been launched.

He said the recent civic polls held in various states where the BJP had won 8,000 of the 10,000 seats was a referendum on the demonetisation policy which had found support of the masses.

A resolution enlisting the state’s government’s failure on various fronts was also passed in the meeting. BJP’s vice president Randhir Sharma, while presenting the resolution, said Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh had become synonymous with false announcements as barely 300 of the 1,300 announcements made by him had been honoured till now. The government had deceived various sections of the society, including farmers, horticulturists, unemployed youth, labourers, students as well as employees and promises made in the manifesto had remained unfulfilled.

Health and education sectors were bereft of staff and the law and order situation was going from bad to worse while the various mafias were proliferating. He said the failure of the state government to finalize detailed project reports of 61 highways reflected its poor governance and the benefit of several Central schemes failed to be utilized by the state government.

Former CM and Leader of the Opposition PK Dhumal, state president Satpal Satti, MPs Shanta Kumar, Anurag Thakur, Ramswrup Sharma, Virender Kashyap, Organisational Secretary Pawan Rana and other senior leaders were also present on the occasion.
