BJP led HP govt will have to do 10-year work in 5 years: Jaitley


BJP has given emphasis on corruption, unemployment, deterioration in law and order and shortage of staff in educational and health institutions in its manifesto for himachal pradesh assembly poll today. Union finance Minister Arun Jaitley released party’s vision document. while releasing the document Jaitley also tried to project united face by shairing dais with Ex CM Shanta Kumar, PK Dhumal, Union Health Minsiter JP Nadda and state party chief Satpal Singh Satti

with its manifesto BJP launched a blistering attack on the Congress government, terming it “government with zero integrity and no credibility”. He allegeall efforts of the government and Chief Minister were  directed towards “self-survival” which is why they failed to fullfill the promises.

“We have to do 10-year work in five years as no development has taken place during the five-year tenure and all section of people have adversely affected by the acts of the government,” he stated.

“The state government used its energy and time in victimising the political opponents and it was a wasted opportunity and the government was insecure and perpetually under siege while the Congress high command was too weak  to act”, he said.

He claimed that “The BJP, if comes to power, will have had task of ‘reestablishing the credibility of the government’”.

Jaitley denied the allegations of Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh that cases against him had been instituted by him (Jaitley) and said all cases were made on the basis of documents procured in 2012 when the UPA government was in power.

Giving respite to the state leadership facing criticism on the GST fallout, Jaitley mentioned that exemption up to Rs 10 lakh under the GST was the state’s own choice and it could be increased to Rs 20 lakh if the state government so desired.

On Kashmir issue, Jaitley lambasted over the former Union minister P Chidambaram, he said “It only shows how much understanding the Congress has of the Kashmir issue. Did he mean that inadequacies of the rights to the Kashmir

Government were responsible for trouble and what more he wants to be given to the state.”

“Only defence, external affairs, telecommunication and currency are with the Centre and the demand will take J&K to the pre-1953 situation when the state had separate prime minister, separate flag and it was out of purview of the Supreme Court and the Election Commission,” he said.



As the state was shocked and rocked by the Gudiya minor rape and murder case and forest guard Hoshiyar Singh’s mysterious death, the BJP promised to start 24×7 “Hoshiyar helpline” in the CM office for reporting all cases of crime and another hotline in police station for women security under “Gudiya Yojna”.
