Anurag Thakur said the wheel of development in the state should continue to run, so it was very important to bring back the BJP government in the state.
He said the work of the double-engine government of Himachal Pradesh was being discussed in the whole country today. In these five years, the government of double engine had created a tension-free and burden-free environment for the state’s people.

The Union Minister said,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi dreamt of a self-reliant India and a lot of work had been done to turn it into a reality.” In these five years, the country reached thirty thousand crores in the field of exports; 5 years ago we were the world of mobile. India was the second largest importing country in the world and today India has become the second largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world”.
He said Prime Minister Modi returned the special category status of the state, which was snatched away by the Congress government, so that the state has to contribute only 10 per cent on its behalf for any development project, the remaining 90 per cent is spent by the central government.
Thakur said today again the great festival of democracy was approaching and, all of you will use your franchise. For the bright future of the country and the state and in order to take forward the chariot of development in this way, all of you will make the right decision with your understanding and discretion, and take forward the nationalist thinking in the interest of the nation and give record votes to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s candidate Dr. Anil Dhiman.
