Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said that is very clear from the Congress party's manifesto that it wants to strengthen the anti-national forces not the nation where the party has talked of reducing the powers of the rule against the sedition and the army. He was addressing a public meeting at Sarahan in Pachhad Assembly constituency of Sirmaur district today.The Chief Minister said that such promises of the Congress party will demoralise the army, the stone-palters and anti-national forces in Kashmir which is not in the interest of the nation. He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given the country an efficient and strong leadership, which has resulted in the country's name being elevated in the world. India is getting Congress free and it is clear that Narendra Modi will again form the government at the Center.He said that the dreams of the leaders of Opposition parties to become the Prime Minister of the country will never be fulfilled because the people have decided that they will vote for Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister again. Despite ruling the vuntry for over five decades, the Congress party was not been able to strengthen the image of the country.
Jai Ram Thakur said that the Modi government has initiated several welfare schemes for the people which have benefited every section of the society. He said that while on one side India's 50 crore population has been provided free treatment up to Rs. 5 lakhs under Ayushman India scheme, on the other hand women of crores of families got rid of kitchen smoke due to free gas connections provided under Ujjwala scheme.He said that in these Lok Sabha elections, no Congress leader wanted to fight the election in Himachal Pradesh due to the fear of defeat and those who are in the fray are saying that they are contesting merely to fulfil the order of high command, not at their own will. He said that Congress candidate from Shimla parliamentary constituency Dhaniram Shandil was earlier working in the army, but unfortunately he is now the leader and candidate of the party who seeks evidence of the army's action.The Chief Minister said that the state BJP government is committed for overall development of Sirmaur district. The BJP candidate Suresh Kashyap, who is associated with Sirmaur has always made every possible effort to fulfil the aspirations of the people on priority.He urged the people to give BJP a historic edge in the Lok Sabha elections from Pachhad region so that once again in the center the Modi government could be formed and the pace of development could be further expedited.MP Virender Kashyap, MLA Sukhram Chaudhary, BJP candidate Suresh Kashyap, BJP leader Baldev Bhandari were also present on this occasion.
