"The chargesheet was prepared by a committee constituted by the Congress high command and all the charges would be probed and taken to logical ends," he told reporters on the completion of one year in office.
    
He said that enquiry into the phone tapping case was nearing completion and a challan would be filed in the court shortly while investigations in other cases are progressing well.
    
Expressing surprise over BJP's reaction on enquiries ordered by his government, he said that initiation does not mean that the person is guilty.
    
He added that former chief minister PK Dhumal and other leaders were making baseless allegations to boost the sagging morale of rank and file of the BJP.
    
The Chief Minister also said that this would not work and the government would remain undeterred by ‘the threats and pressures’ and go ahead with the enquiries to ensure the guilty is punished.
    
Alleging that the earlier BJP governments headed by PK Dhumal has hounded him during both the tenures and false (Kattha and CD) cases were instituted against him and both the times he was acquitted by the court.
    
"I faced cases which were purely a vendetta and there was no chargesheet. But allegations against Dhumal government are based on chargesheet submitted to Congress, to the President of India. All the concerned leaders should face the enquiry and prove themselves not guilty," he added.
    
He said that Dhumal and other BJP leaders were frustrated as the enquiries into their alleged acts of omission and commission are progressing but the government is committed to the policy of ‘zero tolerance towards corruption’.
    
Referring to an enquiry into the land purchased by Prashant Bhushan, Singh said that he did not want to ‘pre-judge’ the issue as the normal process of enquiry is on and the facts are being verified.
    
He also said that the government would take necessary measures to regulate sports bodies in the interest of sportspersons.
    
On whether any minister has offered to quit the ministry to take up party work in the run up to the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls, he said, "No minister has expressed desire to serve in the organization.”
