Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association has asked Chief Minister Vir Bhadra Singh to order a CBI investigation against Rohru Cricket Association, controlled by the CM’s son, for alleged irregularities. This association in Shimla district belongs to Vir Bhadra Singh’s son.

Sanjay Sharma, Public Relation Officer at HPCA, alleged that the CM’s son took control of Rohru Cricket Association, converted it into an NGO, and earned crores from the government by organising cricket tournaments.

“If CM has enough guts then he should do a CBI investigation against the Rohru Cricket Association and that NGO,” Sanjay told mediapersons.

'Faster than law'

He claimed that the CM has been making false allegations against HPCA and its president Anurag Thakur for the past 3-4 years. "Even after filing 5-6 cases against HPCA he is still not satisfied. Our CM wants to run faster than the law,” said Sanjay.

He said that the CM inquired about each and every member of HPCA and filed cases. “We purely believe in our law, and we have been very clear on this point that if we are culprits then give us the punishment,” said the PRO.

Sanjay added, “We want the CM to answer that in how many cases had the government given land on lease for Re. 1 and has that land really been brought into use for the purpose it was firstly taken for on lease? HPCA has religiously been working on its objective of promoting cricket within the state and the country.”
