Chief Minister Thakur Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu Criticizes Hoshiar Singh’s Use of Development Funds, Vows Progress for Dehra

Chief Minister Thakur Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu has accused Hoshiar Singh of misusing development funds for personal gain, specifically to build a resort, rather than investing in the community. Sukhu, campaigning vigorously for the Congress party candidate and his wife Kamlesh Thakur in Dehra, held multiple street corner meetings across the constituency. Highlighting Dehra’s newfound significance as the Chief Minister’s constituency, Sukhu assured residents that their local issues would be addressed despite the current election code of conduct preventing immediate announcements. He criticized BJP leaders for imposing the by-election on the state, attributing it to a conspiracy involving Independent MLAs and six Congress MLAs aimed at toppling the elected Congress government.

The Chief Minister emphasized that the BJP had falsely claimed it would form the government in Himachal Pradesh by June 4, but recent by-elections saw the number of Congress MLAs rise from 34 to 38, showcasing public disapproval of those who switched sides for monetary gain. Sukhu specifically targeted Hoshiar Singh, labeling him arrogant due to his wealth and accusing him of colluding with the BJP. He noted that Singh resigned as an MLA to fulfill a financial deal with the BJP, marking the first instance in Indian history of an independent MLA protesting to have his resignation accepted.

Addressing the local populace, Sukhu urged them to accept any bribes from BJP candidates but to vote for Congress, stressing that this money rightfully belongs to them. He derided Hoshiar Singh for seeking re-election merely 14 months after resigning, asserting that Singh’s arrogance led him to believe Dehra voters were in his pocket. Sukhu also mentioned discontent among honest BJP workers regarding Singh’s ticket.

Sukhu highlighted that each MLA receives two crore rupees annually for local development, but alleged that Singh diverted these funds to build a resort instead of benefiting Dehra’s residents. He questioned why Dehra remains underdeveloped if Singh’s claimed monthly expenditure of 15 crores was true. Sukhu pledged that the state government would not neglect Dehra’s development, pointing to the accelerated completion of a new bus stand in Haripur and other projects.

Rebuffing Singh’s allegations, Sukhu challenged the necessity of imposing a costly by-election on the public. He cited the successful distribution of financial assistance to 1,046 women in Dehra under the Indira Gandhi Pyari Behna Sukh Samman Nidhi scheme. Sukhu promised comprehensive development for Dehra, including the establishment of Superintendent of Police and SE PWD offices, and the creation of an international zoo at Bankhandi to generate employment.

The Chief Minister underscored the Congress government’s achievements, such as restoring the old pension scheme for 136,000 government employees, increasing MNREGA wages, providing substantial financial aid to widows, and ensuring free education and healthcare for vulnerable groups. He also highlighted initiatives to support farmers through enhanced milk and crop procurement prices and funding for stray animal damage prevention.

Sukhu proudly noted that the government rehabilitated 22,000 families affected by last year’s disaster without BJP assistance, and significantly increased their compensation. The campaign saw prominent figures like retired Naib Tehsildar Prem Lal Kaundal and retired ITBP Inspector Bhumi Singh join the Congress party, expressing confidence in Sukhu’s leadership.
