Defending the Himachal Pradesh government, chief parliamentary secretary Inder Dutt Lakhanpal on Sunday said the main endeavour of the state government was to develop the entire state on an equal and balanced basis and it was wrong to say that development went haywire after the Congress came into power.
Addressing a public meeting at Garli village of the Badsar assembly segment, he said Rs. 15 crore was being spent on the construction of roads and culverts in Badsar area in order to provide better communication facilities.
He also announced that Rs. 8 crore would be spent for the construction of the Sehali-Behar bridge and a detailed project report had already been prepared.
Lakhanpal asked people to vote for the Congress and reject the BJP in the elections as the party was anti-people and had done nothing for them during their rule.
This was Lakhanpal's first visit to Garli after taking over as the chief parliamentary secretary.
