Confident about the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) sweeping the upcoming Assembly polls in Himachal Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi termed the inching elections a one-sided contest.
While addressing a public rally in Himachal Pradesh’s Una, Prime Minister Modi said, “I have never seen the enthusiasm that I am witnessing this time in HP during elections. It’s a one-sided contest. This is a clear indication that people want change,” he said.
“The people of HP have decided to teach a lesson to the Congress in these elections. I will only regret one thing, that I am not having fun because Congress has left the battlefield,” he added.
He also asserted that people of HP now know that it is only the BJP which will work for their welfare.
“People are now well aware of our government that works dedicatedly from a government that only used to make statements. Newspaper publications are also tired of posting news about just BJP because nothing else is coming from the other side,” he added.
He also took a dig at the former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi and said the latter refused to combat corruption.
“Congress did not implement the benami assets law as they were well aware it would reveal all their wrongdoings. Few people who faced the heat of demonetization are still complaining and planning to observe 8 November as black money day,” he said.
The polling in the state will be held on November 9 in a single phase and the results will be declared on December 18. The former Himachal Chief Minister, Prem Kumar Dhumal has been declared as the CM candidate of BJP.
