"Jo beet Gayi wo baat gayi (let bygones be bygones). The law would take its own course," Mr Trivedi said yesterday.
Anil Sharma who was a Cabinet minister in the Virbhadra Singh-led Congress government left the party and joined the BJP on October 15 and is now the official candidate of the party from Himachal's Mandi Sadar Assembly constituency.
In the 1993 Assembly election, Sukh Ram's son Anil Sharma won from Mandi but after Sukh Ram's name surfaced in the Telecom scam, he was expelled from the Congress and formed the Himachal Vikas Congress, which later entered into a post-poll alliance with the BJP and joined the government.
"Corruption is the character of the Congress and each time that party is voted to power there is a rat race among the Congressmen to indulge in corruption," he said.
About the the BJP's chief ministerial candidate for the Assembly election, Mr Trivedi said, "not declaring the CM candidate is a part of the BJP's strategy, but an experienced and competent leader would be the selected for the post if the party wins the election."
