Sanjay Rattan , MLA Jawalamukhi today ridiculed the statement of Himachal BJP President Satpal Singh Satti in which he had claimed that Virbhadra Singh had failed to carry out the development of the Himachal Pardesh during his terms as Chief Minister. While addressing the reporter at PWD Rest House , Jawalamukhi ,Sanjay Rattan said that the statement of BJP Chief was far from facts and it seemed that he was not aware of the unprecedented development of the State. He said that Satti should well understand the progress the State had made since its formation. It has been 67 years since the State made significant development in all spheres and today has become the Role Model of development, the credit for which goes to Virbhadra Singh who had become Chief Minister of the State for the record sixth time and had ensured balanced and uniform development of every corner of the State.
Sanjay Rattan said that Satti should remember that it was Congress leadership which made concerted efforts for formation of Himachal Pradesh while the then Jan Sangh had strongly opposed this move then. Now the people with same ideology were trying to pert the attention of the people in the name of development. He said the fact was that whenever BJP came into power it tried to pide the State whereas the Congress had always believed in development.He said it was Virbhadra Singh who was real architect of modern Himachal and it was due to his consistent efforts and vision that today Himachal Pradesh was considered amongst the most developed States. He questioned Satti to come out with details that what was the contribution of BJP in development of the State and go thorough the history of Himachal Pradesh and make himself aware of the progress it made since it came into being.
