New Delhi [India], May 1 (ANI): A Delhi Court will on Monday hear Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh's disproportionate assets case in which his wife Pratibha Singh had filed a plea alleging non-compliance with rules by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in filing a chargesheet. Pratibha's counsel earlier on April 24 argued whether witnesses and documents that were collected during the investigation could be a part of the chargesheet and if the court could read them for the purpose of taking cognizance. The counsel also moved an application seeking consideration of these terms, while also requesting to not take cognizance of the chargesheet. A day after being booked by the CBI special court, the Chief Minister accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of conspiring against him and asserted that all charges levelled against him were fabricated. "The fight has just begun and I know the truth will prevail. All cases against me are fabricated. This is a conspiracy against me stitched by some BJP leaders like Prem Kumar Dhumal and Anurag Thakur. The BJP is misusing its power. There's no truth in it," said Singh. He also said the case against him is a 'political vendetta' and he was ready to face the charges registered against him. "This is a political vendetta. I am not afraid of it. I am ready to face the case," Singh told ANI. (ANI)
