Shimla : Former Congress minister Singhi Ram has dragged his estranged
mentor and Union Minister for Steel Virbhadra Singh to the National
Commission of Schedules Castes, levelling charges of atrocities and
undue harassment to him because he is a Dalit.
In his compliant filed on May 12, Singhi Ram's wife Giani Devi, who
teaches in a government school, has alleged that though her husband
has been a Cabinet minister the Virbhadra Singh government, he has
been subjected to harassment and mental torture by the then chief

"First he (Virbhadra Singh) tried to get the Rampur Assembly
constituency, which Singhi Ram had represented for five times,
de-reserved by the Delimitation Commission. But when he failed to do
this, he denied ticket to him (Singhi Ram) in the 2007 elections," she
alleged. Singhi Ram, who faces a vigilance case involving him and his
daughter Upma Kashyap in the fake marksheet scandal of HP Board of
School Education, had earlier said the Union minister had framed him
in the case.

In the five-page complaint, copies of which were made available to the
media here, Giani Devi said IPS officer A P Singh, currently on
deputation with Virbhadra Singh as his private secretary, was
responsible for registration of the fake marksheet case against her
daughter. Singh was SP (Vigilance) when the case was filed. Virbhadra
Singh, who was travelling in the interiors of Shimla on Monday, could
not be contacted for his reaction. He had, however, earlier denied
Singhi Ram's allegations on his role in the denial of ticket to him or
filing of the FIR.
