Congress leaders Chief Parliamentary Secretary Neeraj Bharati and vice-chairman of the State Road Transport Corporation Kewal Singh Pathania ridicule the plans of the BJP to divide Kangra district, and in a joint statement these leaders stated that the party had not learnt any lesson from its defeat in the Assembly poll.

Congress leaders blamed BJP for dividing Kangra and people of the district have given befitting reply in the assembly election. These leaders claimed that Congress led Govt has ensured the development of the region, whereas the BJP regime only shifted offices from Kangra to Hamirpur, ignoring the interests of the people.

They alleged that the BJP leaders of the Kangra district remained a mute spectator as divisional offices of the PWD, Irrigation and Public Health and the State Electricity Board were shifted and the Forest Office of Dehra was also linked to Hamirpur and the Wildlife Division at Nagrota Suriyan was shifted to Hamirpur.

They claimed that the sub-divisions at Biajnath, Palampur and Jaisinghpur and tehsils at Jwalamukhi, Shapur and Indora were opened by Congress governments, while the BJP government could not even provide land for the Central University during its five year term.
