Congress leaders giving a wide berth to Himachal: PM

For the fruits growers 90 per cent subsidy would be provided on anti-hail nets. For the youth of the hill state there will be creation of 1.50 lakh government jobs in its five-year term

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday hit out at the ruling Congress, comparing it to "termites" and said the party must be thrown out in the upcoming Himachal Pradesh Assembly election.

On Thursday, Modi's vitriolic attack had prompted the poll-bound state's octogenarian chief minister to say he had never before witnessed such conduct by any Prime Minister. He said people are angry with the Congress due to their deeds.

Playing the emotional card, the Congress veteran said that people of Himachal Pradesh will give a befitting reply to the BJP's slanderous campaign against him in the November 9 election.

Please Wait while comments are loading. "Only then we can free Himachal of this disease", Modi added. He said the "pair of Modi and Dhumal (BJP's CM candidate) will take Himachal to new heights of development".




"There should not be one polling booth where this termite called Congress be allowed to thrive", Modi said. Even you know that. "You have a chance again", he said.

"DhumalHP Ji, your remarks on BJP's supposed fight against corruption made me laugh".

Hardening his attack, he said, "I have heard that Congress has lost the trust of it's own leaders and is looking for rebels in other parties".

"They are going to celebrate November 8 as black day and burn my effigies". He also said that no senior Congress leader came here to campaign which shows that the party has already left the field leaving everything on fate. "They don't know Modi is a disciple of Sardar Patel and won't be cowed down".
