"BJP has no issue. It is indulging in cheap politics in the name of Sardar Patel," the Himachal CM said while addressing a public meeting at Tihri in Jwalamukhi assembly constituency.
    
The saffron party organized a marathon 'Run for Unity' in 565 places across the country to mark the death anniversary of Sardar Patel and it is also reaching out to people to collect iron pieces for the ambitious 'Statue of Unity', which is the dream project of Gujarat CM and BJP’s PM nominee Narendra Modi, who wants to erect the statute in memory of Patel.
    
Criticizing BJP, Virbhadra said that the party is misleading people in the name of the country's first Home Minister and it only believes in ‘show-off’.
    
"BJP earlier played with the sentiments of the people on the construction of Ram Temple issue and now, it is misleading them in the name of Sardar Patel. This clearly indicates that it has no concern for the common people and only believes in show off," he said.
    
The Himachal CM further said that the Congress always works hard for maintaining unity and integrity of the country, but few forces are trying to mislead the people for fulfilling their political motives.
    
The Chief Minister also said that his government is committed to providing effective, responsive and transparent administration to the people of the state and it is being ensured that target groups received maximum benefits of developmental schemes.
    
He laid the foundation stone of Rs 1.31 crore Primary Health Centre building and residential complex and Rs 86.65 lakh, GSSS at Tihri.

He also laid the foundation stone of Rs 3.56 crore Community Health Centre Building at Jwalamukhi and Shri Maan Sanskriti College, Jwalamukhi to be constructed at a cost of Rs 1.36 crore by the Jwalamukhi Temple Trust.
