"You have been giving the mandate to the BJP and Congress alternatively, that's why the progress and development could not be consistent", he said. In fact, I was telling my colleagues, why do you want to send me.We are winning Himachal anyway. "No Minister in the present BJP government at the Centre is facing any corruption charges", he claimed.
