BJP has accused the former Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh for indulging in an 'open-and-shut' case of corruption by taking bribe from a private power firm for granting it a 10-month extension to complete a project. The then leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley has written to the then Prime Minister Manamohan Singh demanding a CBI probe into the issue. He has has enclosed 20 documents along with the letter to the PM. The letter said Venture Energy and Technology Pvt Ltd had defaulted on a contract awarded in 2002 concerning hydropower project work in Himachal Pradesh but was given an extension to complete the job. When Virbhadra became the CM again, the cabinet granted a 10-month extension. It was also been alleged that Virbhadra Singh and his wife has received an unsecured loan of Rs 2.4 crores and Rs. 1.5 crores respectively from Vakamulla Chandrashekhar promoter of the company.
