Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia Saturday appealed to the people of poll-bound Himachal Pradesh to give his party a chance and make a "new-engine" government in the state this time.
Referring to the "double-engine government" motif of the BJP's poll campaign, he alleged that it took Himachal Pradesh in the wrong direction and not towards good schools, good hospitals and jobs.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is a new party in the state and people should give it a chance, the Delhi deputy chief minister said.
"The BJP is saying make a double-engine government. The Congress is saying the BJP is bad, make our government. This time do not make a double-engine government but a new-engine government," Mr Sisodia said.
About the Congress' poll promise of reviving the old pension scheme, he alleged it was bluffing on the issue. "No state other than Punjab has implemented the Old Pension Scheme," he said.
The old pension scheme and unemployment have emerged as key poll issues in the November 12 Himachal Pradesh Assembly election.
Mr Sisodia said the people of Himachal Pradesh have always changed the governments after five years "as no party did a good work. They did not build good schools and good hospitals, and made education expensive and also did not make electricity cheap".
"The people of Delhi gave a chance to Arvind Kejriwal and now they have forgotten both the BJP and Congress. You can see that government schools (in Delhi) have become better than private schools. Delhi's hospitals have become wonderful and every person gets free treatment there," he claimed.
"When the people of Punjab gave a chance to Bhagwant Maan, the schools of the state have also started to become wonderful. Mohalla clinics and hospitals have started getting better," Mr Sisodia said.
