Himachal Pradesh Assembly poll 2017: BJP prez Amit Shah says mafia flourished under Congress rule

BJP chief Amit Shah on Monday attacked Congress, alleging the grand old party has “tarnished” the image of 'Devbhumi' Himachal by turning it into a state where mafia prospered.

While addressing a poll rally, Shah raked up former Union Home minister P Chidambaram's comments regarding more autonomy for Kashmir and asked Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi to make his stance clear on the issue. He charged the Congress of speaking the language used in Pakistan.

He alleged, "Himachal has become a land of the mafia with forest mafia, mining mafia, drug mafia, transfer mafia, liquor mafia and land mafia flourishing in the state."

Targeting Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, Shah alleged that there was not even a single member in the Congress leader's family who was not facing corruption charges.

He said the people of Himachal Pradesh would end the corruption and 'mafia raj' in the state.

The BJP has already announced starting a Gudiya help line for reporting all cases of crime and would take prompt action on all complaints to establish the rule of law and instilling a feeling of safety and security among the people, Shah said.
