Congress lost grip over developments, Copied BJP’s earlier manifesto: Dhumal

Election campaign for November 4 polls is in it full swing; all parties are trying their best to influence the voters. Political parties have released their manifesto, offering somewhat similar promises, except little differences on daily pay wages and employment generation for youth, and now blame game on that has also been started.

Congress in its manifesto promised 1 lakh jobs for youth, whereas BJP has target of gigantic 10 lakh new jobs in state. That seems too much for the 70 lakh population of Himachal Pradesh.

BJP leader Prem Kumar Dhumal has accused the Congress for copying its 2007 manifesto, and claimed that the Congress promises have already been implemented by the BJP government in present tenure.

In the BJP rallies at Dadhole in the Ghumarwin constituency and at Barthin in Jhandutta, he stated that the Congress has lost its grip over developments, which have happened here during the past five years, apart from it having not a single leader with vision, imagination and practical sense of knowing the present problems of the state.

In his address, Dhumal charged Virbhadra Singh for hurling charges against others only because he himself had been involved in a large number of corruption scandals. He also condemns the Anand Sharma statement over the FDI in state and claimed that it will hurt small traders of Himachal.
