Dhumal asks people not to be misled by Congress

punjab Updated: May 31, 2015 19:01 IST

While blasting the Congress party-led state government for bringing the state’s development to a standstill, former chief minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Prem Kumar Dhumal has asked people not to believe the party or its leaders as they were just trying to fool them to regain their seat at the Centre.

He was speaking during his meetings with the BJP functionaries of Hamirpur assembly constituency as part of a massive campaign launched to take party’s policies and programmes to the grassroots level.

Lauding the BJP, Dhumal said the party’s government at the Centre had done a lot for the people and was heading towards creating new milestones.

The BJP leader said the central government was committed to find a solution to the One Rank One Pension (OROP) issue, but wouldn’t take such a vital decision in haste.

He said the decision on OROP was almost final and would be announced shortly.

Dhumal gave a clarion call to the party leaders to be ready for the next panchayati raj elections in the state and to fight the elections jointly.

He expressed optimism that with the blessings of the people, the party would be able to win more than 80% seats in the state during the elections.
