Himachal Pradesh Congress chief Kuldeep Singh Rathore announced on Friday that his party will run a public awareness campaign from November 14 to 28 to inform people about the state government's failures.

As Assembly elections approach, Rathore lauded Congress workers and congratulated its leaders for victory in three Assembly seats in the recently conducted by-elections in the state.

While talking to the press on Friday, Rathore said:

"The day when our elected MLAs of Congress took an oath to office, neither Chief Minister Jairam Thakur nor any state minister participated in the event. In a democracy, it is necessary to follow the traditions, but the Chief Minister did not bother to follow the tradition."

He added, "Congress was successful in taking the issues of the people. After the defeat of the current BJP government in the state in the recently concluded by-polls, inflation and potholes in the roads are visible. Notably, after the defeat, the Central and state government immediately reduced the prices of diesel and petrol. However, there has been no reduction in the prices of LPG cylinders. Congress party would take up the issues of the people with more energy after this by-poll victory."

"Congress will run public awareness campaign from November 14 to 28. Under this, a road march will be carried out in all the assembly constituencies here. With this campaign, the failures of the government will be brought to the public,” Rathore informed.
