Kangra (Himachal Pradesh) [India], November 2 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the people of Himachal Pradesh have the opportunity to kick out those who have looted the state, in the upcoming Assembly elections.

While addressing a public rally here, the prime minister said, "You have the opportunity on November 9 to boot out those who have looted Himachal Pradesh. Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh is embroiled in corruption yet the Congress, in its manifesto, says there will be zero tolerance of corruption. Even a child won't believe it,"

He added that the Congress had become a laughing stock and that they needed to introspect why people were turning away from them across the country.

"I have worked extensively in Himachal Pradesh and I am very familiar with all cities. I know each and every street here. There are five monsters in Himachal Pradesh which we need to get rid off - mining mafia, forest mafia, drug mafia, tender mafia and transfer mafia," Prime Minister Modi said.

The state is set to go to polls on November 9. (ANI)
