Shri Prakash Chaudhary, Excise and Taxation Minister and Shri Jagjivan Pal, Chief Parliamentary Secretary have criticized Shri Anurag Thakur for forcefully entering into Vigilance office at Dharamshala today along-with his supporters .
They said Shri Anurag Thakur was earlier asked to appear in vigilance office Dharamshala on 22nd October, 2013 but due to Karva Chauth on that day the date was postponed for 24th October, 2013. As the enquiry officer was out of Dharamshala due to some important official work on 24th October,he was again informed to appear on 31st October, 2013. Despite information of the changed dates was given to him, he intruded into the Vigilance Office with his supporters and tried to disrupt the law and order.
Shri Prakash Chaudhary and Shri Jagjivan Pal said it was a pre-planned strategy of Shri Anurag Thakur to gain political mileage. He due to his unruly behaviour tried to disrupt investigation process, which shows his intentional disregard towards the rule of law . He said that Shri Anurag Thakur was intimated to appear on 31st October, 2013 for investigation and he himself accepted it. But despite this he forcefully entered into Vigilance Office on 24th October and making turbulence which shows his cheap political motives. They said that he is not above law, as what he thinks.
They said that Shri Anurag Thakur had committed fraudulent means by illegally occupying the land under the garb of HPCA during the regime of his father, the then Chief Minister, Sh. Prem Kumar Dhumal. They said that he had constituted a Society under HPCA for capturing the government land and then converted it into a Company for taking the commercial benefits. They said that now he is trying to threaten the investigating agency for diverting the attention of the people by his illegal activities.
