Lok Sabha MP Anurag Thakur addressed a public meeting at Fatehpur, which is a native Assembly segment of suspended BJP MP Rajan Sushant. While addressing the rally Anurag Thakur alleged that the UPA government had always discriminated against the Himachal. He added that due to effort of the BJP Govt, State has made steady progress in its tenure.
He also targeted previous Congress Govt and said that former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh had promised at least one job in every family during his tenure, but only 3,568 unemployed youth could get jobs during his regime. But the present Dhumal government had set a record by providing 60,000 employment opportunities to the jobless.
He claimed that the cricket stadium built at Dharamsala by the HP Cricket Association had brought the Kangra valley on the world map. He announced that the cricket stadium proposed by the association at Nurpur would be completed within the next three months. State BJP vice-president Kirpal Parmar and Nurpur MLA Rakesh Pathania were also present at the rally.
