There is a need of dedicated Congressmen who remained committed to party under all circumstances and not behave like ‘Aaya Ram and Gaya Ram’.
Party cadre should be well disciplined. They should stand by the party during the elections and not to be swayed away by the false promises of opposition or any other person.
The people of the Kutlehar should support the candidate whom the party will give ticket. He asked Congressmen to stay united and obedient.
This was stated by Chief Minister Shri Virbhadra Singh while addressing a public meeting at Samoor-Kalaan in Kutlehar assembly constituency of district Una today.
He said that the BJP did not win elections from Kutlehar on its own, but due to friction between Congressmen in the party. This is high command to decide as to whom ticket was to be given. Every Congress man should abide by the decision of the Congress high command, he said.
Though there were many aspirants for party ticket in the constituency, but whomsoever got the ticket, it became moral responsibility of all to backup the party candidate, he said. He exhorted the party-men to set an example by winning Kutlehar assembly election.
He said that the government has left no stone unturned to develop the region. He said that the government had paid special attention to the areas having MLAs from the BJP, as opposite to BJP Government, which when comes to power, focusses its attention on developing the areas having their party MLAs. Congress government had always paid attention to develop all regions of the state equitably, he said. The BJP believes in autocracy and not in democracy. They believe in regionalism and character assassination and spread false propaganda, said, Chief Minister.
He said that after the candidature for elections is announced, the people should extend support to the candidate and not try to stand in parallel in competition. We will be at loss if we indulge in infighting and should stand united for victory, he said.
