Mandi, Nov 28 (UNI) Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today claimed that Congress party would again come to power with two-third majority and would form government in the state.
Addressing a public meeting after the Congress candidate from Chachiot filed his nomination papers at Gohar today, he said people of the state were not going to be befooled again by the BJP which had been misleading the people by spreading canards and raising slogans.
''The Dhumal government had done nothing during its tenure except spreading corruption in various spheres. All development came to a standstill in the BJP rule,'' the Chief Minister said.
He said the tenure of the Congress government was an era of development in the state in sharp contrast of non-performance during Dhumal government.
''Tremendous development has been made during the current tenure of the Congress government which opened large number of schools, colleges and hospitals and made roads and bridges and set a record of regularising as many as five lakh employees.'' ''The development made in the state has been appreciated by various national agencies and it had distinguished itself as the best state in the spheres of literacy, health, drinking water supply and social welfar,'' claimed Mr Virbhadra.
Meanwhile, state BJP President Jai Ram Thakur, also filed his nomination papers from Chachiot. Later, addressing a public meeting Mr Thakur alleged that the Chief Minister had neglected the ''backward'' Chachiot constituency merely because the constituency was represented by BJP MLA.
