Chandigarh, Nov 12 (UNI) Punjab Medical Education Minister Tikshan Sud claimed here today that the Bharatiya Janata Party was all set to sweep the coming Vidhan Sabha Elections in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat, decimating Congress from the electoral scene of these two states.
Mr Sud, who has campaigned in Himachal for the party, said that during his election tour of the hill state, he got the impression that that vigilant electorate was ''itching to teach Congress a lesson for their rule of corruption and non-governance'' in the state.
Mr Tikshan Sud said that Congress seeing the writing on the wall was desperately looking for issues to put the blame of defeat on each other. He said that the Raja Virbhadra Singh would prove to be a ''Mikhail Gorbachev for the Congress party, instrumental in disintegrating the party and decimating it from the electoral scene of Himachal Pradesh.
Mr Sud said that affidavit submitted by UPA government in the apex court in Sethusamundram issue has exposed the ''hidden agenda of Congress Party that is out to convert India into a Catholic Christian colony of Italy which the citizens of India would not tolerate.'' He said that even the mishandling of nuclear deal has exposed the ''spineless'' character of Congress party.
Mr. Sud said that nationalistic electorate of the two states has decided to give a ''befitting reply to Congress by routing them in the coming elections''.
The electorate in Gujarat was ready to give another term to Narinder Modi-led BJP Government for making Gujarat state a global investment destination.
The BJP leader said that BJP workers under the combined leadership of Mr Rajnath Singh, Mr Lal Krishan Adwani and Mr Atal Bihari Vajpayee working day and night in both the states to ensure highest ever victory margin in all the states.
He said that people of these two states were also looking forward for ''Ram Rajya'' under the leadership of BJP.
