Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said on Thursday that the opposition party should make everyone its CM face as only the BJP is going to win the state polls.
At a meeting here on the last day of the recruitment, Thakur said: ‘To date, it is not known how many leaders are contenders for the prime minister’s post this time. Congress should make everyone the top ministerial candidate, but the victory will be the BJP.”
The prime minister accused Congress of making false promises. “Congress leaders make false promises, so there is no need to listen to them. On the other hand, the BJP does not promise, but executes. We had not promised retirement to 60-year-old elders, support for patients, relief of electricity and water bills. But the BJP government has done all this.”
He claimed that Congress has tried to loot the country and the state and that it should not come to power. “Now the people are working to uproot that congress from all over the country. This time the same will happen in Himachal,” Thakur said.
He addressed a public rally in support of BJP’s Rampur candidate Kaul Singh.
Speaking about the Assembly constituency, the Prime Minister said the people of Rampur know that an MLA of Congress has lived here for decades, but “he has not developed the area”.
“This time, the residents of the region will send BJP candidate Kaul ji to the meeting with a big win,” he added.
“Rampur asked for lecture, BJP lectured, asked for distribution, gave it, demanded sub-tehsil, we delivered on that, expressed the expectation of money for roads, we provided a supply of crores,” he said.
“Had there been an MLA of the BJP from Rampur, new development records would have been set in this area today,” the prime minister said.
Thakur is holding three meetings on the final day of the polls campaign to be held on Nov. 12.
