Shimla: Himachal Pradesh Congress president Kaul Singh Thakur today accused the state BJP government of violating the model code of coduct. He also claimed that BJP had been running a prapaganda to claim credit for developmental schemes sanctioned for the state by the UPA government.

Addressing a press conference after launching a website for the state Congress committee, Kaul Singh said BJP had been inaugurating projects whose stone-laying was done during the Congress rule. He said the state Congress has also complained to the Election Commission regarding violation of model code of conduct by the BJP.

He alleged that despite the election code of conduct being in force, the BJP government had been carrying out transfers and promotions in the back date. Kaul Singh said the government had been campaigning for the forthcoming polls in the garb of distributing CFL bulbs in the state as every packet of CFL bulb carries printed material on achievements of the BJP government.

Claimed that the Congress party would emerge victorious in all the four parliamentary seats, he added that the party would soon declare their candidate for the remaining Hamirpur parliamentary seat. Kaul Singh said the IIT, ESI medical college,  fashion designing institute and the central university were UPA government’s gifts to the state, for which the state BJP cannot take credit. Congress spokesperson Mukesh Agnihotri and former speaker Gangu Ram Musaphir were also present on this occasion.
