Dharamsala: Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today said that Himachal Pradesh is much developed than Gujarat in many ways.
Addressing a rally here after the nomination filed by Chander Kumar, the Congress candidate from Kangra seat, he said, "It is not true that Gujarat is leading in every field in the country, even Himachal Pradesh is ahead than Gujarat in so many fields like in education sector."
"Congress government has opened thousands of schools in the State, where as the BJP government when P K Dhumal was in power, closed down 175 school," he said.
Commenting on BJP leader Shanta Kumar, he said, "Kumar, who held the post of Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh twice has no achievements to tell the public, instead he raised a hotel for his family at Palampur."
Besides Chander Kumar (Congress), the other who filed the nominations today are Rajan Shushant (AAP), Baldev Raj (Himachal Swabhiman Party) and Dani Ram (Independent). Lal Husain (BSP) and Prem Chand (Independent) filed their papers earlier for this Parliamentary constituency.
