Modi magic didn't work, Cong will win in HP: Sukhu

Press Trust of India  |  Shimla 

State chief Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu today claimed that "Modi magic" did not work in and his party would win in the recently- concluded Assembly polls.

He also said the BJP's target of getting over 50 seats in the 68-member Assembly "would remain a dream".

"Modi magic did not work in and the declaring P K Dhumal as its chief ministerial candidate had no impact. Hamirpur, the home district of Dhumal, recorded the lowest polling," Sukhu told reporters here.

He said leaders and workers worked dedicatedly in the polls and those who acted against the party candidates, "howsoever tall they might be, would face action".

"In spite of acute shortage of resources, Congress' campaign was effective and the people rejected the money power of the BJP," the state chief said.

He also said that Assembly elections in and should have been held simultaneously.

Polling for Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections was held on November 9 and counting of votes would take place on December 18.
