Narendra Modi has hurt HP's tourism industry & farmers: Rahul Gandhi

Monkeys swarm a street in Himachal Pradesh

"Modi ji has affected the apple growers, farmers and those involved in the tourism industry", Gandhi told an election rally in Paonta Sahib town in Sirmaur district ahead of the November 9 assembly polls. "My fight against corruption will not stop", he said. The Congress can not scare me by burning my effigies. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said while defending the decision on demonetisation.

The polling for the 68-seat Himachal Pradesh Assembly will take place on November 9.

Reflecting on the claims of BJP leaders that the indirect tax structure was passed with Congress support, Gandhi said the present structure of GST was not what was proposed by his party. Modi said that over 3 lakh companies have shut down after demonetisation and a probe into 5,000 such firms has found a fraud of Rs 4,000 crore while investigation against others was on. "This is a clear indication that people want change", Modi said.

"Had she done note ban when needed, I would not have had to carry out this big task".

Thomas jobless rate jumps to 6.3% in October
The largest employment increase was in Quebec, followed by Alberta, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, and New Brunswick. The trade deficit came as exports fell 0.3 per cent to $43.6 billion in the month, a fourth consecutive monthly decline.

Invoking local deities in his rallies, Mr Modi also cited Kullu's famous Dusshera celebration and said he is indebted to the hill state where he had spent many years as an incharge of the saffron party and learnt a lot. But, Modi said, he would miss the fun of fighting an election as Congress has already left the battlefield.

Accusing PM Modi of speaking "selectively" on the issue of corruption, Gandhi alleged that the prime minister "never spoke about the Vyapam scam, Lalit Modi scam or any other scam surfacing in BJP ruled states and has skipped mention of Jai Shah, or his crorepati business friends".

The Prime Minister said he will pay off the debt through development in the state. During an address in Kangra district on Saturday, PM Modi slammed the ruling Congress calling them termites and asking voters to throw the party out of the state.

The BJP is hopeful of getting a clear majority and defeating the incumbent Congress government in the hill state.
