Statesman News Service | Shimla |

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur on Sunday lashed out at Congress leaders for questioning his Delhi visits and said he was making visits for getting the funds for development of Himachal Pradesh (HP).

Addressing a public meeting at Kutlehar in Una district, he said, ‘I will go to Delhi time and again to seek funds for the welfare of the people of Himachal’.

“Besides, it was not the Congress government in Delhi but the Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government which cares for the needs of the people of Himachal Pradesh,” he said, adding if the Union government had not provided loan of Rs 500 Crore lately, the government wouldn’t have the money to pay salary of employees. “The government funds were lavishly spent during the previous Congress regime which appointed a number of Chief Secretaries, Chairmen and vice-chairmen, resulting in emptying of government’s coffers,” he said.

He urged the people of the state to vote for Modi led Central government again which was completing its term of office in 2019 to ensure that the development oriented government is at the helm once again.

“The country never witnessed such a massive change towards development and a step towards digital India, as happened during the present regime of  Modi led NDA government,” he said. He dared the Congress to prove any act of omission or commission during four year regime of Modi government and said, “Today India was becoming the super power under Modi,” he said.
