Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Prem Kumar Dhumal on Sunday appealed to the party cadre to stand united in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections.
Dhumal, who was attending a function organised to celebrate the BJP's 32nd foundation day, said the saffron party was in a position to win the Lok Sabha elections.
The function was organised at Samirpur, Dhumal's native village. The former chief minister went on to criticse the Congress, saying that its leaders had harmed the people during the UPA's tenure. “People of India and Himachal Pradesh are upset with the negative role of the Congress. That is why they were waiting for an opportunity to oust it from power,” he said.
Dhumal said several people were joining the BJP. He also motivated party workers to fan out in villages and tell the people about the policies and programmes of the BJP and seek their votes for the party.
