Describing the alleged incident to be a ‘serious matter’, Dhumal said that Virbhadra had misguided the I-T Department as well as the Election Commission by hiding information about the loans he and his wife took from firms of Vakamulla Chandrasekhar.

"In case the Chief Minister remained adamant on not resigning from the post, BJP would urge the President and Himachal Pradesh Governor to sack him and order a CBI enquiry into the allegations levelled against him," Dhumal said.

He further clarified that the BJP government had cancelled a sanction of a power project to Venture Energy and Technology after it found that the company had given wrong facts to the government.

The former chief minister asked the Congress high command to take strong action and remove Virbhadra to prove that the party was all set to remove corruption from society in real sense.
