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

On seeing its vote bank eroding, the party announced the chief ministerial face in Himachal and same was happening in Gujarat, alleged Sharma.

Both BJP and Congress have roped in star campaigners to address rallies across Himachal Pradesh which is going into elections on November 9.

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".

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 Congress and corruption are inseparable, they are like a tree and its roots". The Congress can not scare me by burning my effigies.

Higbee also became the ninth opposing tight end to catch a touchdown pass against the Giants this season. Then a Pharoh Cooper 30-yard punt return set up a Gurley 44-yard reception to the Giants' one-yard line.

Slashing harsh attacks on the Prime Minister, Rahul said that Narendra Modi though speaks against corruption but chose to be tight lipped over the Vypam Scam in Madhya Pradesh, where the entire education system was sold out and 50 people were killed. Donning a Himachali cap, Modi, on his third and last round of election tour of the state, said: "In the last 20 years, there has not been a single election where I have not been involved".

Invoking local deities in his rallies, Mr Modi also cited Kullu's famous Dusshera celebration and said he is indebted to the hill state where he had spent many years as an incharge of the saffron party and learnt a lot. Rahul said that according to Modi, it is 'faal sab kha jao, kaam ki chinta mat karo' (eat away all the fruits and need not bother about the works to be done). "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.

Congress state incharge Sushilkumar Shinde, Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and state party president Sukhwinder Singh were present at the rally.

Playing the development card by emphasising on promotion of tourism in the hill state, the Prime Minister said his government was focusing on laying road networks in the state.
