PM highlighted the development strides and policies of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s double-engine government in the state.
Addressing ‘Vijay Sankalp Rally’ in Solan, PM Modi said, “Himachal Pradesh needs a BJP government that will provide stability to it. For 30 years, there was instability in Delhi. Governments came and went while thousands of crores of rupees were wasted in elections that happened repeatedly. In 2014 people voted for a stable government.”
“During Congress’s rule, there were various groups that had a vested interest in unstable governments. Small states were the target of such self-centred groups. These groups worked only for their own interest. The people of Himachal know that Congress means the guarantee of corruption and selfish politics. BJP’s work and resolve are strong while in Congress there is indecisiveness, uncertainty and anarchy,” he said.
Meanwhile, Thakur has said that the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code in the state is the commitment of his government and it will be done.
This comes after the party’s national president JP Nadda released the election manifesto for the Assembly elections in which the party vowed to implement the UCC after the formation of the government again.
Calling the UCC a “necessity”, Thakur reiterated the party’s commitment to its implementation.
“It’s very important. BJP is a national party and we feel it is a necessity. There are technical aspects but a committee will be constituted. We’ll go ahead on the path that will come out. Implementing UCC is our commitment and we’ll do it,” he said while speaking to ANI.
The Chief Minister said that the Old Pension Scheme, though not been announced in the manifesto, has not been shut down and is under consideration. (ANI)
