Opposition politicizing sensitive issues
INVC NEWS Shimla, Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh while addressing a public meeting at Solan, today said the Opposition in the State was trying to play politics over the death of an innocent girl, Guddia, and was also responsible for unrest in Tissa, in district Chamba he said, adding that all those who were involved in the loot and arson and had damaged the public property won't be spared.
