BJP wants HP campaigning to be extended

Shimla: Accusing the air traffic control (ATC) of being partial, Himachal Pradesh’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said on Wednesday its leaders’ plans to campaign have been stymied because permission to fly helicopters was denied. The party has now asked Election Commission to extend campaigning by a day, till Nov 3.

“The delay in granting permission by the ATC in the landing and take-off of helicopters of our leaders has resulted in loss of time. We have sought special permission from the Election Commission to campaign even Nov 3,” BJP spokesperson Praveen Sharma said in a statement here Wednesday. Elections are being held Nov 4.

He said the party has also lodged a complaint on the issue with the ATC, a wing of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.

“ATC authorities are giving the plea that this has to be done due to the visit of Congress leader Sonia Gandhi, but it’s affecting our campaign,” he said.

“No permission was granted yesterday (Tuesday) as Sonia Gandhi was campaigning in the state till 4 p.m.,” Sharma said.

Sharma said BJP leaders Prem Kumar Dhumal, JP Nanda, Anurag Thakur and Smriti Irani could not travel by helicopter to campaign.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi visited Shimla and Kangra towns on Tuesday, while her son Rahul Gandhi is visiting Bilaspur and Chamba districts on Wednesday.

Polling for the 68 assembly seats in Himachal Pradesh will be held Nov 4. Votes will be counted Dec 20 after the Gujarat assembly polls are over.

    Sir, It is obvious that the congress is facing amassive defeat at the hands of the people ,and in order to avert this catastrophe Sonia and her mafia are trying their utmost to stop everyone else from holding election rallies and scuttling their efforts to address the meetings. the writing on the wall is now crystal clear to the public of India. Jai Hind.

    Whatever way Congress tries to use the civil aviation dept to block BJP leaders from visiting HP its fate is not going to improve as some of the key leaders have alreay visited and that is suffice to turn the tables.Congress will either be decimated or if its number nears the victory margin they will try the Uttarakand method of taking the support of some other parties if they have some numbers.So BJP has to win with a good margin or cross the half way mark and plus some more .In that case the compaign of Sonia and Rahul will get a good beat.Sonia visited once in Gujerat and could not impress.Nobody knows when she is going to visit Gujerat again and her darling that idiot Rahul.But Modi is so astute to handle them.Congress has nothing to offer except some freebies and also attacking Modi on Godhra for which Sonia got a good beating in 2007.Same tactics are being used by Vaghela the Congress chief in Gujerat by saying the Godhra riots as they have nothing to offer.Of course they may get muslim votes who are still at loggerheads with Modi.But a section of them esp. youngsters are not bothered abt some riot which hapened 10 years back and want prosperity and they will surely vote for Modi.The trend is one of fogettingthe past and move on even among muslims.Congress has not answered of the genocide created in 1985 after Indira’s death in Gujerat which is more than that of Godhra.So wild tactics won’t help Congress and they will be the losers in both states.
