Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed on Saturday that the people of Himachal Pradesh had decided to keep the BJP in power, saying that rapid progress and a stable government were needed in the hill state.
Himachal’s polls are special this time because the votes cast on November 12 are not just for the next five years. Every vote on Nov. 12 will determine the state’s development path for the next 25 years,” Modi said during a poll in Sundernagar in Mandi district.
Mandi is the home district of Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, who also addressed the gathering.
“A few weeks ago, India completed 75 years of independence. When India celebrates 100 years of independence, closer to that, HP will also complete 100 years of its founding. That is why the next 25 years will be very crucial,” emphasized the prime minister.
Modi stressed the need to achieve rapid progress and stable government in Himachal Pradesh and said: “I am glad that the people of Himachal, his youth, mothers and sisters understand this very well.” Modi claimed that the people knew that the BJP stood for stability, “sewa baav” (service), “sam-baav” (equanimity), and gave top priority to development.
“That is why the people of Himachal Pradesh have decided to bring the BJP back to power,” he said.
