“It is clear from the unkept promises that the Congress is not interested in winning the elections. Even before this, in 2003 and 2012, when the Congress had formed the government, it had come to power on false promises. The resentment among people against Congress the will be reflected in Lok Sabha results,” he said, adding that the BJP would win all four Lok Sabha seats in Himachal.

He said the BJP was a worker-oriented organisation. Anurag had detailed discussions with workers and leaders on the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

He also interacted with women who participated in Pahari music competitions. “Women in Himachal are strengthening the Pahari culture,” he said.
