Hamirpur, Oct 23 (UNI) The Congress today expressed optimism that it will win all the five assembly seats in Hamirpur district, while the BJP accused the state Government of adopting unfair means to come back to power and of violating the model code of conduct.
Official spokesmen of both the parties in different press conferences here expressed optimism that they would be returned to power after the two-phase polling on November 14 and December 19.
Talking to mediapersons here, Congress' Mahesh Sharma, said the people of the district would re-impose their faith in the party and help it return to power in the state after the assembly elections.
Claiming that the party was united in the assembly elections under Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, he said, on the other hand, the BJP was a divided house with too many leaders fighting among themselves for leading the party in the state.
Mr Sharma said good governance would be the party's poll plank in the elections.
BJP spokesman Rajendra Rana, on the other hand, accused the Congress of adopting unfair means to remain in power.
Accusing the government of violating the model of conduct by giving extensions and appointments, he said it was trying to compensate for its failure in four and half years by making announcements in the back date.
