Says this matter is one of biggest scams in state so far
Dharamshala: Secretary of the All India Congress Committee Sudhir Sharma, a former minister, has said that the resignation of State BJP President Dr. Rajiv Bindal from his post reflects the seriousness of the current situation due to the purchase scam in the Health Department during the tenure of the present government. He said, “This shows the level of involvement in the scandal in the Health Department where the state president of any national party has to resign and it has to be said that it is only on the moral ground.”
He added, “This shows that all the purchases made so far in the Health Department due to global disaster like Corona epidemic are under suspicion.”
Sudhir said in his press release in Dharamshala on Wednesday that this matter is one of the biggest scams in the state so far and have been put under the supervision of the Prime Minister's Office to a separate nodal officer. “While taking cognizance of this act, an inquiry committee of the Hon’ble High Court should be constituted and strict action should be taken because at present public confidence has vanished from government agencies”, added Sudhir.
