Veteran Congress leader and Himachal Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh termed the ‘Parivartan Rally’ by BJP was a mere flop show. Congress leader, speaking at a public meeting at Khamaadi in Rampur assembly segment of Shimla district, termed the rally a display of pomp and show, adding that one should reach to the people in far flung areas and villages to muster support and not by Rath Yatras and so called Parivartan Rallies.
