Sukhu said on rebels and independents: Public will teach them a lesson for ‘selling’ themselves

Stepping up his attack on six Congress rebels and three independent MLAs who voted for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate in the Rajya Sabha elections, Chief Minister Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu on Saturday said people are trying to persuade them to “sell themselves in the BJP’s political market”. Will teach you a lesson.

Addressing a gathering at Kupvi in ​​Shimla district in support of Congress candidate Vinod Sultanpuri from Shimla (SC) Lok Sabha seat, Sukhu said, “Himachal is Devbhoomi and the people here never support dishonest people and the present election will decide whether Honesty must win and dishonesty must defeat.”

He said the current election is not about saving the chair or the government, but about “saving democracy” and asked voters to decide whether the strength of democracy is “money power or manpower”. Sukhu said that the current election is not an ordinary election and it will decide the direction of the future politics of the country.

He asked, “If the government in power at the Center buys the elected representatives with money power, then what will be the value of the vote?” He said that conflict between truth and lie is common but truth always wins. Sukhu appealed to the people to teach a lesson to those who play with their emotions.

Accusing Leader of Opposition Jairam Thakur of being power hungry, Sukhu said that his (BJP) government lathi-charged and used water cannons on the employees demanding restoration of the old pension scheme.

He said that all eligible women in the age group of 18-59 years will be given a pension of Rs 1,500 per month and after the elections are over, women will get Rs 3,000 in a single installment.
