Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur on Sunday said five years term was not enough for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and people feels that he needs another term to take India to new heights in the fields of development.
Talking to media during the meeting state office bearers with party in-charge of Bharatiya Janata Party for Himachal, Thakur said the people of the country would vote PM Modi to power again in 2019 Lok Sabha as was the case in 2014 polls.
He urged the party workers to gear up for 2019 Lok Sabha polls and said the party would win all four Lok Sabha seats in the upcoming general elections.
He lauded the Central government for sanctioning various projects for the state and said Modi government was providing all possible help, required for the development of the state.
“But this was not the case during Congress led UPA government at Centre,” he said, while accused the previous Congress regime of neglected the interests of state. Thakur said in the last seven months, the government had tried to live to the expectations of not only of the general public of the state but also of the party organisation.
“I had visited around 51 assembly constituencies during the last 7 months and the people of the state are supporting the governance and initiatives of the government,” he said.
Now, it is up to the general public to decide whether the government lived up to their expectations or not, he added.
He called for better coordination between party organization and government and said the party workers should spread awareness on the policies and schemes of state as well as centre government.
Meanwhile, party in-charge of BJP for Himachal Mangal Pandey said Himachal is witnessing tremendous development owing to better coordination between Centre and state government.
It was due to this fact that various projects worth thousands of crore of rupees were sanctioned for the state, Pandey said.
