The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson, Sambit Patra on Wednesday said after rooting out the ‘damad model of development’ from Haryana, the people will oust ‘father-son model of development’ from Himachal Pradesh (HP).
He launched a scathing attack on HP Chief Minister, Virbhadra Sigh and his son, Vikramaditya Singh on corruption issue and said the poll arena in HP is hijacked by ‘fathers, sons and daughters.
Patra gave details of the increase in property of Vikramaditya, a Congress candidate from Shimla (Rural), whom Virbhadra showed as a dependent in 2012 Assembly polls.
“At national level, Congress president, Sonia Gandhi and his son are on bail and in Himachal. CM and his son are on bail. The people should reject ‘zamanti family’ (family on bail) in Himachal and elect the hard working BJP,” the BJP spokesperson said.
He said in Congress, the family is a party, while in BJP, the party is family.
When asked on CM’s face in BJP in Himachal, Patra said the Central Parliamentary Board will take a call on this. “In Uttarakhand and other states, we have fought the elections similarly,” he said.
