Shimla: Top leaders from the Congress and ruling BJP will put their best foot forward in convincing the voters in this hilly state as campaigning ends on Friday for the crucial Assembly elections scheduled for Sunday.
As per reports, senior BJP leader and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley willtry to woo voters in Shimla while Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal will be reaching out to voters in Kangra.
Congress stalwart and former chief minister Virbhadra Singh, facing graft charges, will be holding public meetings in Kullu and Bilaspur.
The Congress had, on Thursday, alleged that unemployment in the state had shot up during the BJP’s rule and that the Dhumal government had given the land mafia a free run.
Newspaper advertisements too have been a bone of contention between the Congress and the BJP. The Congress is crying foul over advertisements put out by the Dhumal government listing its achievements.
