He said that the Congress regimes had been the witness of overall development of the country. It was the Congress Party which made occupancy tenants of the land as the owners of the same land and it was the Congress, which taking into consideration the plight of the farmers, waived off their loans and because of this and many other reasons, the people voted Congress to power many times.
Himachal had also progressed in leaps and bounds and the Government was always considerate to the welfare of the people of the State. Pensioner benefits were being given to the needy and the old. The social security pension has been enhanced from Rs 600 to Rs 650 and as many as 3,63,825 people were being provided social security pension, he said.
