While the election campaigning in the Himalayan state of Himachal pradesh is in full swing with leaders of both Congress and BJP accusing each others with serious charges including the prime minister Narendra Modi and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi vociferously hitting each other by their curse remarks and allegations, one things seems to be common and i.e. the issues of election already held in Uttrakhand where BJP has formed government and Himachal Pradesh where elections are due for 9th November are almost the same. What sounds interesting is that the BJP in Uttarakhand targetted the then Congress government of Harish Rawat on issues like corruption, Liquor, land, illegal mining, transfer, forest and drug mafia including dereriorating law and order situation and were quite successful to convince the voters of this 17 year old state finally gaining absolute majority and even more by bagging 57 seats out of seventy.
Similarly in Himachal assembly elections too, which is geographically and traditionally a Himalayan state witnessing more or less same problems is also the victim of the mafia rule as the charges being traded by prime minister Narendra Modi. In his recently held public meeting in Rehan and Una in Himachal Pradesh to capture the Congress strongholds prime minister Modi slammed the current Congress regime of Vir Bahadur Singh of corruption and promoting the liquor, land, forest, drug and transfer mafia in the land of abode of Gods and exhorted the electorates to ged rid of the Congress regime which has become a symbol of patronising these elements filling their financial coffers with laundered illegal money.
Prime Minister Modi said a chief minister who is already indicted in a graft case has no right to continue in power. The 73 year old former chief minister and the officially declared BJP CM has vowed to fight the liquor, land, drug, forest and transfer mafia as directed by prime minister to free Himachal Pradesh of incessant corruption let loose by the current political dispensation led by tainted CM Virbhadra Singh. Meanwhile, the Nehru Gandhi family scion and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has yesterday in a hard hitting tweet in Hindi attacked PM Modi and his government asking it to step down for not performing to the peoples’ expectation. In his tweet while criticizing Modi’s government Rahul Gandhi has written: MEHENGI GAS, MEHENGA RATION/ BAND KARO KHOKHLA BHASHAN/ DAAM BAANDHO KAAM DO/VERNA KHAALI KARO SINHASAN.
