Hamirpur, Dec 5 (UNI) Terming the present Congress Government in Himachal Pradesh as "one of the most corrupt state governments" ever, former BJP national president Venkaih Naidu today called upon the people to inflict a humiliating defeat on the party for its misdeeds during the last four and half years.
''Time has now come when you should take revenge from the Congress for failing to live up to your expectations. You gave them a chance to serve but they betrayed you,'' he said, while addressing one of the five rallies to be addressed by senior party leaders in different parts of the state, here.
"Now is the time to strike and take revenge from the party that had failed on all fronts and had stifled development and democracy in the state," Mr Naidu said Asserting that the BJP would comfortably return to power after the assembly elections, he said it was expecting to win over two third seats riding on a huge anti-incumbency against the state Congress Government.
Promising to provide a clean and a transparent government on being voted to power, the BJP leader said it would give top priority to improve basic infrastructure like roads, bridges, schools, and health institutions besides providing employment to a large number of educated youth of the state.
He said the party would only make those promises that it would be in a position to fulfill unlike the Congress that promised the moon but failed on all fronts.
Drawing a comparison in the performance of the NDA and the UPA Government at the Centre and the previous Dhumal Government and the present Virbhadra Singh Government in Himachal, Mr Naidu said the functioning of the BJP governments at both the levels was far better than that of the Congress.
''So before casting your precious vote this time, make a comparison between the two and then act,'' he said.
