Virbhadra won’t quit, ready to face probe
Himachal chief minister Virbhadra Singh on Thursday ruled out resignation in the wake of corruption charges against him by the BJP, and said he was ready to face any probe by any agency. ‘Only if charges are proved,’ he said, responding to questions from reporters on whether he would resign in the wake of allegations of corruption against him. Refuting allegations, Virbhadra reiterated that he was ready to face any probe and accused BJP, and some Congress leaders (without naming anyone), of hatching a conspiracy against him. The CM argued that his family members were adults and at liberty to make investment like any individual person, and claimed that the investments made by them in a company were less than 1 per cent.
