Shimla, June 14: The BJP on Tuesday appealed to Shimla residents to give a chance to the party to rid the capital of the Congress and CPM. Chief spokesman of the BJP Rajiv Bindal, who held a roadshow to muster support for BJP-backed candidates in the fray for the SMC polls, said huge funds would be required for restructuring the civic amenities and solving the chronic problems of drinking water, parking, traffic woes and decongesting the town which would be possible only under the Modi government at the Centre and the BJP, which is bound to return to power in the state.
Bindal took out the road show from Sher-e-Punjab to Central Telegraph Office(CTO) through the busy Lower Bazar and stressed that the BJP alone could solve the problems of Shimla and restore its pristine glory.“We are not contesting the SMC polls for winning the elections but fighting for the rights of the residents of Shimla who had suffered under the 31-year rule of the Congress and CPM on the civic body and facing perennial water crisis, congestion, parking and traffic jams,” Bindal said, adding that the situation turned from bad to worse.
Bindal asked the voters to make a choice in the larger interest of the town and its residents. Proper coordination between the Centre and the state government and the SMC was crucial for speedy development, he asserted.“Give us a chance and we will give you a city worth living,” Bindal said taking a jibe at the Chief Minister for his comments that the water problem would be solved in next 3-4 years.
