Shimla, March 16
Leader of the Opposition PK Dhumal yesterday alleged that the Congress had allowed 2,398 land transactions worth 11,500 bighas under Section 118 of the Land Tenancy Act during its regime.

He said it was much higher as compared to 1,640 land approvals worth 14,500 bighas under the same section during the BJP regime. Dhumal said land in the state was on sale and its recent example was the temple land of McLeodganj which was given on lease to a Punjab resident.

Dhumal said the BJP government got 85 awards in the field of development, while the Congress government was acting on a political vendetta and engaged itself with large-scale transfers in the past 15 months. He alleged that corruption was at its peak.

Reacting to Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh’a media statement that he would not answer any corruption charges, Dhumal said he was ruling the state like a dictator where nobody could even talk about the corruption issue.
