Himachal polls : Modi inventing new slogans but inviting politicians, who are facing corruption charges to join the party


When Prime Minister Narendra Modi will understand that people are looking for crime free environment, employment including financial benefits that sustain them throughout life, health care and conducive environment to progress (with no riots) and no ‘Jumlas’ will be successful in capturing power.

Modi who has been shouting his slogan of ” na khaunga na khane dunga” is now inviting the corrupt politicians to join the party as former Trinamool Congress founder-leader Mukul Roy has joined the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has been accused in multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam and Narada sting operation case.

With polling in Himachal Pradesh scheduled for November 9, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is inventing false theories, narratives to defame the Congress party, thinking that the people of the state are going to vote on the basis of how BJP is going to carry out its political vendetta against the grand old party.

Narendra Modi is taking the voters (Janta) to a very wrong and dangerous direction of fake promises  as people are going to vote on the issues of employment,basic amenities (House, Clean water, 24 hours electricity, clean environment and clean government), livelihood, health benefits and savings as the benefits of pension are almost vanishing.

When people are engaged in 24×7 in quest of jobs, PM Modi is using these and every elections for raising unrealistic slogans and rhetoric while nothing has been done on ground by the Saffron party for the common man to enable them to live in the 21st century as compared to the 1947 when people were in need of roti, kapda and Makan because they were having employment with pension benefits.

Congress has never used rhetoric and false slogans to win any elections and PM Modi must understand that the country over which he is ruling now, the numerous world class institutions were created by the Congress party and conducive business environment was made available for innumerable Business tycoons to emerge where as BJP has only helped Adani to get foreign contracts.

Campaigning in Himachal is in full swing and PM Modi has now vowed that if he will come to power, “BJP will crackdown on Benami assets and Congress is running scared of this.” The main rivals have locked horns in all 68 constituencies.

Again, PM Modi must understand the ground realities as people have been crushed by Demonetisation, GST (Goods and Services Tax) and rampant unemployment.Congress leader Anand Sharma said that the “hasty implementation” of the GST has taken away over 31 per cent of the jobs in the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises sector. “It has been three years since PM Modi said that an import duty will be levied on apples, he hasn’t done anything yet,” he said.

There are only two main political parties in Himachal Pradesh : Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party and these parties have alternately returned to power for each term since the early 1990s. The Congress has already announced that the 83-year-old Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh is its chief ministerial candidate, while the BJP is suffering from factional feud between two-time former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and Union Minister J.P. Nadda. The dominant Rajput vote which constitutes 38 per cent of the state’s population may tilt towards Virbhadra Singh.

BJP’s star campaigner Modi may fail as his party is scrambling to woo voters with rich promises jobs to all households, tablets and Internet to students, interest-free loans to farmers, helplines to women, and pensions to the aged.But so far, Modi in his more than three years of his rule, BJP has miserably failed to fulfill any of the jumlas they have been raising since 2014.
