The Election Commission has sought a report from the Himachal Pradesh Chief Electoral Officer Narinder Chauhan, on the affidavits filed by Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and his wife Pratibha Singh during their elections in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
The development apparently has come in the light of a memorandum submitted by BJP MP Anurag Thakur, who had met Chief Election Commissioner V S Sampath in Delhi a few days back.
Anurag had accused the CM and his wife of concealing details of a Rs 3.90 crore loan, raised from Vakamulla Chandrashekhar and of the family's shares in a company owned by the businessman. BJP leader Arun Jaitley had also written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh levelling allegations of corruption against the Chief M.
