Una (HP), May 7

BJP leader and former chief minister Jai Ram Thakur has been reduced to the role of introducing Kangana Ranaut, actor and the party's candidate from Mandi, Deputy Chief Minister Mukesh Agnihotri has said.

Agnihotri said that the Congress is contesting the Lok Sabha elections with seriousness and, therefore, the victory of their Mandi candidate, "Vikramaditya Singh was a foregone conclusion".

"Leader of Opposition Jai Ram Thakur was earlier considering himself as the star campaigner of Himachal Pradesh, but now he has become only an introducer of Mandi parliamentary constituency candidate Kangana," Agnihotri, who was in Ghaluwal in Una district for a workers' conference on Monday, said.

Referring to the resignation of three Independent legislators, who had voted in favour of BJP Rajya Sabha nominee Harsh Mahajan along with six former Congress MLAs on February 27, the Congress leader said that it seems that Thakur had drowned them too as they had no compulsion to resign.

The deputy CM of Himachal Pradesh alleged that Thakur was in a hurry to grab power in the state and as a result operation Lotus failed in Himachal. "He (Thakur) is being scolded by the BJP high command for not succeeding in his drive to topple the democratically elected Congress government in the state," he said.

Agnihotri also said that the BJP should not consider themselves as the only devotees of Lord Ram.

"The BJP built the Ram temple in Ayodhya but we all have also been in its favour too. We will also go to pay our obeisance in the grand temple," he said, adding that temples are centre of faith but the saffron party is using them to gain votes.
