That Virbhadra Singh has done all over development , if Rampur and Theog are developing than Nagrota and Kangra is also not behind in development.

Our views on theog rally.

I will request Modi to come Himachal : CM
He also said that he will request prime minister Modi to come  Himachal. He said Modi can come to Himachal to start Rampur vidyut pariyojna project. This project is joint venture of state and central government.

U - turn of CM on issue of Rampur as new district
Yesterday he said that Rampur as new district of himachal is under government's consideration. He added that government want to make rampur as district, and people near region don't get problem with administrative services.
Why CM want rampur as new District ?
It's important to know that CM Virbhadra Singh is king of rampur riyasat and he belongs to Rampur bushehar. This is the main reason he always want to make Rampur as district .He has told many times that he will make Rampur as district. But till now he couldn't implement it.
Problem in formation of Rampur as district and reason of CM 's U -turn
Rampur as new district is always a hot topic in state .There are two faces of this issue One is  government can't afford extra load of new district as he said yesterday.
Other angle with this issue is that whenever there is demand of Rampur as district, people start demanding Rohru as district. It was rohru which was earlier in news to be made as new district when CM was MLA from from Rohru. But it was never implemented, so it's quite difficult situation for Virbhadra Singh this time.
CM 's connection with Rohru
As Rampur is Virbhadra Singh's home place , Rohru was his work place and won election maximum times from Rohru.
It's not Virbhadra Singh, but present MLA Mohan Lal Bragta won with maximum margin from Rohru just because of him.
So he can't sideline Rohru and people of Rohru.
Our view on this issue
Virbhadra Singh is in big confusion he can't make one district out of rohru and rampur, and it's not possible for government to afford load of two districts. So our advise to government of himachal is ,leave this topic here only.
It will be really interesting to see how BJP react on this issue.
Specially BJP Rohru which are very active.
Dharamshala cricket ground , one of the beautiful ground located at god's city himachali. But it's unfortunate people of state always miss cricket action because of political leaders and bad politics of himachali Pradesh.
Ipl 2016 matches in dharmshala

What happened this time?

IPL is running in India and this is cricket league season, but himachal is facing political issues with HPCA . HPCA was hosting IPL matches but now three matches has been shifted to mohali which earlier Himachali cricket association was hosting.Remember every year HPCA hosts IPL matches and it is home ground for kings XI Punjab.Now matches of 7th , 9th and 15th may matches will held in Mohali cricket ground.

Is this first time match has been shifted???

No, it's not first time that matches has been shifted earlier high voltage match between India verses Pakistan was shifted to Kolkata due to security issues mentioned by himachali government.

Political views of parties on this issue 

  • Sudhir sharma, Rural Development minister Himachal Pradesh (congress party)
"Cm virbhadra Singh had given assurance of full security inside and outside of ground, even assured entertainment tax free matches. Matches has been shifted because of HPCA not government of himachal pradesh."
  • Anurag thakur, bcci secretary, HPCA president (bjp)
"Looking at old incident of India-pakistan match we have asked government to give assurance about security in written for these IPL matches. But even after 1 week government have not replied so this shows negative response of government for IPL matches."

HPCA and Bjp is saying government is not giving assurance about security but Cm had publicly announced to give security for all matches in himachali earlier .

What's our view on this issue ???

Himstates feels on this issue that both parties are trying to capture public votes with this issue. Congress is trying to show people of himachal that they are against the work culture of HPCA and they are not against cricket, whereas BJP is trying to counter Bjp with allegations that congress party doesn't support cricket in state. But all-over both parties are fighting for votes, one is fighting to be 7th time CM and other is trying to make his father next CM.
But himstates want to advise them ,more than politics you should focus on people of himachali.
