Narendra Modi has hurt HP's tourism industry & farmers: Rahul Gandhi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses an election rally in Mandi in HImachal Pradesh

The counting of votes will take place on December 18.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday likened the Congress to "termites" and asked the voters of Himachal Pradesh to "uproot" their ruling party and give a three-fourths majority to the BJP. Mr Modi, who addressed three rallies in the hill state at Una, Palampur and Kullu, continued his attack on the Congress, and said: "The Congress has left the ground and run away". The party has promised interest-free loans to farmers, laptops for students, jobs for youth and special grade pay-scale for all employees. For the Congress, corruption is its only identity. "The leaders in Congress can not bear this, so they are attacking me", the Prime Minister said.

PM Modi in an election rally hit out at the Former PM, Indira Gandhi saying "I had to do it, because Indira Gandhi did not".

Rahul said that while Narendra Modi always talks about corruption, he has been silent on the Vyapam scam. The Congress can not scare me by burning my effigies. Donning a Himachali cap, Modi, on his third and last round of election tour of the state, said: "In the last 20 years, there has not been a single election where I have not been involved".

The Prime Minister said he will pay off the debt through development in the state. "Himachal Pradesh's real issues are unemployment, development, and public welfare, but BJP is not even looking there", he said.Badal said the BJP was yetr reveal the "secret formula" behind the rise in the income of its national president Amit Shah's son Jay Shah.

He reiterated that the state needs to be freed of five danavs (demons) - "mining mafia, forest mafia, drug mafia, tender mafia and 'transfer mafia", for which the state needs to throw out the incumbent Virbhadra Singh-led Congress government.
