Congress angry because I am fighting corruption: PM Modi in Himachal

Today, the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi visited Himachal Pradesh to conduct three election rallies in Sirmour, Chamba and Kangra district. "My fight against corruption will not stop", he said.

Voting in 68 Assembly constituencies in the state is due on November 9 and the results will be out on December 18. The Congress can not scare me by burning my effigies.

Hitting back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his charge of rampant corruption in the Congress-ruled state, the Congress scion claimed that as per a NITI Aayog report graft levels in Himachal Pradesh were way below others.

The prime minister also claimed that senior Congress leaders were not campaigning in Himachal Pradesh because "they have conceded defeat and left CM Virbhadra Singh to his fate".

On Sunday, the Prime Minister, during his poll campaign in Himachal Pradesh, attacked the Congress for corruption and said "Congress and corruption can never separate from each other".

"Had she done note ban when needed, I would not have had to carry out this big task".

Likening the Congress to termites, PM Modi said the party must be totally finished off as he sought three-fourths majority for the BJP in the state.

While addressing the rally, he also expressed confidence that his party will sweep the upcoming polls in the state.

"I will only regret one thing in these elections, that I am not having fun because Congress has left the battlefield", Modi said at a rally in Una. Party president Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also addressed public meetings. "The prime duty of the prime minister should be job creation for the unemployed youths", he said, adding that it was not being done which was a betrayal.

He reiterated that the state needs to be freed of five danavs (demons) - "mining mafia, forest mafia, drug mafia, tender mafia and 'transfer mafia", for which the state needs to throw out the incumbent Virbhadra Singh-led Congress government.
