Shimla: Congress asks its opponents to desist from a mudslinging campaign. Congress spokesperson Kuldeep Rathore today accused BJP for lowering the traditional standards of Himachal politics, in reaction to an advertisement published in newspaper by BJP for election campaign. He said, â€œResorting to personal attacks by indulging in dirty politics is not a healthy tradition, the people of Himachal donâ€™t appreciate this. People will once again vote for development by reinstating their faith in Congress policies.â€
