Sujanpur,3 September 2017: While interacting with the media on sidelines of the function held at Patlandar in Hamirpur, Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said that he would file a defamation suit against those who were trying to implicate him in the infamous Guddia rape and murder case and were leveling false allegations. He dared them to prove the same and said that those who were flaring up the issue would certainly be dealt with firmly.  Chief Minister said that he personally wrote a letter to the Prime Minister for handing over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation. Let the CBI deal with it and bring the real culprits to book.

Chief Minister said that there was no question of dissolving the Vidhan Sabha as is being demanded by the BJP. The government will complete its term, he said.

He said that the tickets would be distributed on merit taking into consideration all the factors of win-win situation. The capable candidates would be given preference, he said.

On being asked that whether he will lead the party from the front in coming assembly polls, the Chief Minister said that certainly the Congress High Command would consider the seniority. The senior leaders are always given preference. 'I have served the Congress for 55 long years and I would lead from the front to make Congress party win the elections though I may contest elections or not but will not show my back to the party and together we all can make it to next assembly' he said.
