On the penultimate day of campaigning in poll-bound Himachal Pradesh, also known as "Dev Bhoomi" or the "Land of Gods" Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi cited the Bhagwad Gita to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Rahul will be holding three rallies on Monday, in Paonta Sahib, Chamba, and Nagrota. Also, the Congress manifesto focuses on the youths and farmers.

Reflecting on the claims of BJP leaders that the indirect tax structure was passed with Congress support, Gandhi said the present structure of GST was not what was proposed by his party.

On the other hand, the BJP is mainly banking on popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has been accusing the Congress government in Himachal Pradesh of rampant corruption and misgovernance.
