Congress leader Sachin Pilot fiercely targeted the BJP during a press conference here. “The dual-engine government of the BJP will be derailed soon,” he said. Its first engine will stop working in Himachal Pradesh on November 12 and the second engine will stop working in 2024. Pilot said that the successive visits of top BJP leaders to Himachal Pradesh are proof that the ruling party is worried and on the defensive.
People made up their mind to vote for Congress: Pilot
Sachin Pilot claimed that internal differences of BJP are coming to the fore and the people of the state have made up their mind to vote for the Congress. At an election rally, Pilot said the performance of the BJP government in the state has been poor and it has failed to fulfill its promises made five years ago. He urged the people to choose Congress as it is a reliable option to secure the future of the people of Himachal Pradesh.
BJP has done nothing: Sachin
The Congress leader said, “BJP has not done anything for the state in the last five years. If they could have sought votes on the basis of their performance in the last five years, they would not have called so many leaders from Delhi. Pilot termed the BJP’s manifesto as a ‘grey’ in which it has sidelined the issue of old pension scheme.
BJP creating confusion over old pension
The Congress leader said, “Old Pension Scheme (OPS) has taken root in Himachal Pradesh and people are passionate about it, but BJP is creating confusion about it.” There should be no ambiguity in this, because OPS is a commitment that Congress has made to the people of Himachal and it will be fulfilled immediately after our government is formed.
