The double standard politics and masked faces won’t be tolerated within the party cadre. When any member of opposition wins time and again, it clearly indicates that it was not possible due to help of few so called leaders within the party who play politics behind the curtain and in the dark.This was stated by Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh while addressing a well attended public meeting at Kotla Kalan in Kutlehar assembly segment of district Una today.Since Kutlehar had witnessed lot of development in the past but no Congress candidate had ever won from Kutlehar from last 35 years and similar was the condition of Una assembly segment as from last 15 years, the Congress men in Una were also facing defeat.He said that he had identified such black sheeps in the party in Kutlehar and Una assembly constituencies. There were few leaders who try to take his shelter and lure him but he was well aware of their motive, he said. The double standard politics should be avoided and if anyone wants to join opposition, he was free to go.
He said that such people who cheat with party cadre were like double edged weapons and the people have to be aware of them.The Chief Minister said that BJP leaders in Una were not such big-wigs that they can’t be defeated, but they were winning elections due to the Congress men who were cheating upon Congress cadre and helping them.He also exhorted the newly elected panchayat representatives to work sincerely and dedicatedly for one and all irrespective of political affiliation. He said that adequate funds would be provided to panchayats for its development. He said that his priority had been development and redressal of the grievances of the people of the state.
