Leader of Opposition accuses Congress rule for the lack of transparency in distribution of relief package

The Leader of Opposition, Jairam Thakur, issued a rebuttal to Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu’s press conference, accusing him of attempting to topple his government.

During a press conference at Landmark Hotel in Wednesday BJP leader Jai Ram Thakur responded to Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu’s accusations, calling it a move to divert attention from basic issues.

Dismissing the allegations of attempting to topple the government, Thakur stated that the BJP’s focus is on serving the people. He mentioned that the government couldn’t keep its members together, leading to several elected members of the assembly joining the BJP recently, and he emphasized that this trend would continue if the ruling party did not maintain order within its ranks.

The political tension escalated after six Congress MLAs cross-voted for a BJP candidate in February. Thakur criticized the Congress party’s lack of development schemes and questioned their claimed achievements.

Thakur demanded accountability and transparency from the ruling party, stating, “We are here for the people’s welfare, not political theatrics.”

Emphasizing the need for accountability in the management of the disaster relief package, Thakur demanded transparency from the ruling Congress party. He accused the Congress of mismanagement and selective distribution of funds.

Defending the central government’s decision to not release funds to Himachal during the testing times of natural disasters, Mr. Thakur called for a detailed account of funds received from the Modi Government.

Thakur alleged that the state government was favoring Congress leaders in distributing disaster relief funds and urged for an impartial investigation.

He highlighted the dire state of healthcare, citing IGMC’s Rs 70 crore outstanding dues and unfulfilled promises such as the robotic surgery project.

Thakur also expressed concerns about the closure of institutions affecting the public and alleged hindrances to schemes like Ayushman Bharat and Him Care.

Stressing the importance of transparency in public fund spending, Thakur stated people must know where their money is going.
