Cash transactions land BJP minister in trouble

Dharamshala | TNR

Himachal government’s BJP minister Rakesh Pathania has landed into trouble following cash transactions by his son Bhawani Pathania in Kangra Central Co-operative Bank in his constituency at Nurpur in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. 

Teaming up against minister 

Ranveer Singh Nikka, the BJP leader of Nurpur accompanied by others including former block president Lekh Raj Sharma, former block president Dilbag Guleria, former Zila Kisan Morcha leader Ramesh Sharma, former zila panchayati raj prakosth convenor Jitender Pathania, former zila vice president Atul Sharma, former block vice president Avtar Dadhwal, former zila karya samiti member Rajinder Singh, former Yuva Morcha secretary Anil and former block samiti Vipin Sharma had opened front against the minister.

Press conference by detractors

In a press conference held on Wednesday at Dharamshala, Ranveer Singh Nikka disclosed that the minister’s son had done cash transactions in the bank which are suspicious and falls under abnormal loan recovery.

He said that the minister’s son had purchased a vehicle for which a loan of Rs 13 lakh was taken but the same was repaid in cash within months. Even before the loan was not repaid in one bank, the same vehicle, purchased by the minister’s son, was sold to one of his friends and again a loan was raised on the same vehicle by forging documents.

“I call upon government agencies to act in this case within 48 hours or else we will move to the high court in this regard. People should know about the flow of cash and the reason behind forging the documents,” he added.

He said that a written complaint in this regard will be filed with income tax officials. 

Ranveer Singh said: “We have filed an RTI with the bank officials and are waiting for the details after which we will file a detailed complaint with the IT department seeking detailed investigations in this case”.

Minister’s son plans to file defamation case against detractors

When contacted Bhawani Pathania, son of minister Rakesh Pathania said that he had given proper amount to the bank for closure of loan case and “will file a defamation case against those who are leveling baseless allegations against me and my father”.
