Shimla: Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today dismissed the challenge posed by Bhaujan Samaj Party by saying â€œhad BSP found a more able and stable leader, the party could have made some difference in the elections.
â€œThe BSP factor is being overrated and the electoral contest is between the Congress and the BJP,â€ he said.
About the BSP chief ministerial candidate Vijay Singh Mankotia, the chief minister said â€œhe was a leader on the run.â€
â€œEveryone knows the track record of Mankotia, for he has changed many political parties and now he has even decided to contest from Dharamshala instead from Shahpur, a constituency he has been representing,â€ the chief minister said. â€œClearly he feared losing in Shahpur,â€ he added.
â€œNow he has even deserted his voters and shifted to a new seat. People can never trust such kind of leaders,â€ said Virbhadra.
