HP BJP chief quits over DHS bribe row

Shimla: Bharatiya Janata Party State president Rajeev Bindal on Wednesday tendered his resignation from the party’s top post citing high moral grounds after his alleged indirect involvement in the recent Directorate Health Services (DHS) bribe row in the state.

Mr Bindal, in a statement and a video message, said that he tendered resignation on high moral grounds being the party chief of the state.

He further said that recent bribe scam occurred in the DHS and subsequently Director Health was arrested on the basis of an audio clip and investigation is still underway.

Terming it unfortunate to drag the name of a BJP state leader behind the corruption, by some people indirectly, he stated that he considered it necessary to owe his responsibility being the state president of the party.
