Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Sunday criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his "termite" remark on Congress and said it reveals his despair as the party was losing ground in Himachal Pradesh.

"People of Himachal Pradesh have chose to teach a lesson to the Congress in these elections. Few people who faced the heat of demonetisation are still complaining & planning to observe 8 November as black money day", he said. "Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister from Congress is known for corruption". And what has happened is just the starting, there are many more things to come against corruption, says PM Modi. There was maximum development in Himachal when Atal Ji was in Delhi and Dhumal Ji was here in Himachal.

"Welfare of people has never been a priority for the Congress party". Donning a Himachali cap, Modi, on his third and last round of election tour of the state, said: "In the last 20 years, there has not been a single election where I have not been involved. People of Himachal Pradesh have made a decision to teach a lesson to those who have cheated them", PM Modi said. He added that there was a time when people used to talk about losses and now they talk about gains.

No senior leader of the Congress was willing to come to the hill State because they have sensed a clear defeat here, Mr. Modi said, adding that the people of Himachal Pradesh were going to punish the party for ignoring the process of development that had been initiated by the Dhumal and Vajpayee governments at the State and Centre respectively.
