Shimla: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Sunday slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government in Himachal Pradesh for ignoring the interests of the people.
Holding his first election rally in Una town, some 200 km from Shimla, he said the BJP government has not done much for the state, which shared a close link with the Nehru-Gandhi family.
“The Nehru-Gandhi family has a bondage with Himachal Pradesh and did a lot for it,” he asserted.
Manmohan Singh said whatever development work was undertaken in the state in the past eight years was all due to the financial support extended by the United Progressive Alliance government.
“The BJP government has not done any development work in past five years,” he added.
“If the Congress party returns to power in the state, it will bring Himachal back on track,” he added.
