Shimla, December 27

Citing failures in governance, Covid management, finance and other sectors in the past four years, the Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) today submitted a memorandum against the government to the Governor and sought his intervention to check deterioration in all sectors.

Poser on 100% vaccination

Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee chief Kuldeep Singh Rathore questioned the claims of 100% Covid vaccination figures and said if the population was already vaccinated, who were the people getting jabs at present.

March against rising inflation

  • After the PM’s rally in Mandi on Monday, Congress workers took out a protest march against the state and the Centre over rising inflation and unemployment issues.
  • Leading the march, District Congress Committee chief Prakash Chaudhari said inflation was quite high during the BJP regime in the state and the Centre.
  • He said: The number of unemployed youth is rising drastically. The prices of LPG cylinder, diesel and petrol have increased considerably, affecting the common man directly.” TNS

The state has a debt of more than Rs 65,000 crore and all sectors, including health, education, transport and tourism, are facing the consequences of poor governance, said HPCC president Kuldeep Rathore, who led a protest march against the failures of the government to Raj Bhawan.

Attacking the Centre and BJP leaders for not safeguarding the interests of the state, Rathore said development indicators, economy and employment figures in numerous reports showed a downward trend and increasing transparency had become the need of the hour.

A similar protest march was organised throughout the state at district levels and memoranda were submitted to the Governor through Deputy Commissioners. It also referred to the rampant corruption in the past four years and mining, jungle, liquor and tender mafia prevailing in the state.

Addressing mediapersons, the president said BJP national president JP Nadda and Union Minister Anurag Thakur had also failed to get any financial package to the state. The BJP leaders were trying to fool the people by inaugurating the schemes and projects started during the Congress regime.

He asked the government to issue white paper on investor meet held at Dharamsala and Mandi and said the state had excelled in the pharma industry during the Congress regimes but the growth had come to a halt during the BJP tenure and the firms had started shifting from Himachal due to the non-cooperative attitude of the government.

He also questioned the claims of 100 per cent Covid vaccination figures and said if the population was already vaccinated, who were the people getting vaccinated at present. The cost of LPG cylinders had doubled ever since the BJP government came to power at the Centre and the ration cost under PDS had also increased, making life of a common man difficult.
