Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Himchal CM Virbhadra Singh and Sushil Kumar Shinde during election rally at Paonta Sahib in Sirmaur district, Himachal Pradesh on Monday, November 06 2017.

The Congress leader's rally in Paonta Sahib was first among the three public addresses that he will hold today.

He said it is hard to separate "Congress and corruption from each other" and when it comes to "vikas (development)", the party is famous for "atkana, latkana aur bhatkana (creating hurdles)". For the Congress, corruption is its only identity.

Targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul said, "It is written in Gita that one should work and not worry about the fruits of labour".

After bearing the insulting attacks of Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing rallies in Himachal, that Congress has accepted its defeat and left Virbhadra Singh to fight the battle alone in the hands of the fate, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi visited the poll-bound state on 6 November. The Congress can not scare me by burning my effigies.

"My fight against corruption will continue".

Taking a dig at the Congress central leadership, he said the party has already left the battlefield and it was a one-sided contest.

While addressing the rally, he also expressed confidence that his party will sweep the upcoming polls in the state. "The prime duty of the prime minister should be job creation for the unemployed youths", he said, adding that it was not being done which was a betrayal.

Batting for his government's biggest tax reform with the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), Modi said it has benefited the transport sector.

The BJP is hopeful of getting a clear majority and defeating the incumbent Congress government in the hill state. Not missing the chance as always, Rahul also attacked BJP President Amit Shah and his son Jay Shah saying that over that also Modi was quiet.
