03 November 2017

Addressing the crowd in Dhaula Kuan in Sirmaur district, PM Modi said that even the Congress is aware that it would be defeated in the upcoming Assembly elections.

"Congress has now become a laughing stock".

Polling for the 68-member Himachal Pradesh Assembly will take place on November nine and counting of votes will be held on December 18.

It was not the Congress of Mahatma Gandhi or of freedom fighters but of corruption and dynasty politics, he said in Kangra.

He also said that the Modi government's policies have made the life of common people very tough with decision like GST and Demonetisation also rising prices are making daily wagers life more troubled than ever.

Without taking the Gandhi scion's name, Modi said it was sad and shocking that a person, whose great grandfather, grandmother and father were all prime ministers, doesn't trust his country's constitution and elected government.

Earlier speaking in Kangra, PM Modi mocked the Congress over its election manifesto which talks about providing a corruption free governance.

"While he (Modi) snatched the special category status from the state in 2015 (while restoring it temporarily in 2017), he has not fulfilled his promise of raising import duty on apples or laying the railway line from Mandi to Leh", the Congress leader said.

The PM also brought up India's first PM Jawaharlal Nehru with reference to the Jan Sangh, which he said was created to counter the Congress through the efforts of leaders like Shanta Kumar, a former CM and a BJP candidate.

"I wasn't too eager to come here when we were planning rallies and meeting in Himachal Pradesh because it wasn't needed. You have a chance to say goodbye to those who looted you", Modi said, promising "a magnificent, divine Himachal" under the BJP rule.

The NDA government, he said, was combating corruption through technology and the direct transfer of subsidies to beneficiaries had not only saved Rs 57,000 crore but also ended corruption.

Regarding the launch of the "Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik" (UDAN) scheme between Shimla and Delhi, Surjewala said the central government's scheme has failed completely. The country can not expect anything from the Congress as it has become a non-serious group.
