The Financial Express - - POLITICS -

New Delhi, March 28: Hi­machal Pradesh chief min­is­ter Virb­hadra Singh, who has ac­cused the Modi dis­pen­sa­tion of try­ing to "desta­bilise and top­ple" his gov­ern­ment by us­ing cen­tral agen­cies, met Congress pres­i­dent So­nia Gandhi on Mon­day in the back­drop of Pres­i­dent's Rule be­ing im­posed in party-ruled Ut­tarak­hand.

On its part, BJP re­futed Singh's al­le­ga­tions, say­ing this was to get “cheap sym­pa­thy”. Singh has been so far avoid­ing go­ing to jail but he can “go there any time”, it said.

Singh, who is fac­ing a probe by the En­force­ment Direc­torate(ED) in a dis­pro­por­tion­ate as­sets case, is be­lieved to have ap­prised the Congress chief on “sus­tained ef­forts” by the Cen­tre to dis­lodge his gov­ern­ment. PTI
