New Delhi, Dec 17 (UNI) The Congress would highlight the ''clear and unequivocal good governance'' by the Himachal Pradesh government headed by chief minister Virbhadra Singh in the state assembly poll.

Talking to mediapersons, AICC Spokesperson Abishek Manu Singhvi said today the party was sure of getting elected again in recognition of the good governance provided during the last five years of its rule in the state.

He claimed the Congress government had fared well in the last five years, despite inheriting a huge debt burden of Rs 15,000 crore from the previous BJP government.

Alleging the former government was plagued by corruption charges, Mr Singhvi said the present Congress government was free from any graft allegations.

He also highlighted several schemes implemented by the incumbent government, saying, ''While the previous government retrenched 35,000 workers, the present government created four million jobs through its tax holiday scheme, which attracted investment to the tune of Rs 30,000 crore.

Dr Singhvi described as a landmark legislation, the act passed recently making it compulsory for the parents to send their wards to schools.

He said the Congress would provide a better governance in the coming years, if it was voted to power again.
