The defense minister has addressed public rallies in several constituencies in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand in recent days.
Earlier on February 9, during a speech at a public rally in Janeshwar, Mr Singh took a swipe at Congress, declaring that the opposition party has been wiped out across the country.
The Secretary of Defense also stated that Congress only “lurks in the mountains”.
“Congress has been wiped out from all over the country. It’s just lurking in the mountains,” he said.
The Union minister praised Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami for exemplary development works in the state in a very short span of time and mentioned that the BJP government has spent more than Rs 1 lakh crore for the development works in just one year.
Singh had also called on people to vote for the BJP and to elect Dhami as their prime minister, promising that “we will take all steps to make the state prosperous”.
The senior BJP leader said nearly 78 lakh voters will write the fate of Uttarakhand in this Assembly election to be held on February 14.
