‘We will create history as no govt has retained power in HP’

Prem Kumar Dhumal

First I have come to support him as the Chief Minister of Gujarat and thereafter….. That's why I say, Gujarat has a chance to stand behind one man named Modi. He has already emerged as a national leader. The nation needs such a strong leadership.

What is Modi's strongest point?

I think Modi can anticipate things well in advance. Second, he can plan and he has a determination to implement his plans. As a friend I know him as a soft, sympathetic and helping person. I would tell the people of Gujarat that they have got the best leader and the best model of governance. The whole world is looking at Gujarat's election results.

Will the polls results of Gujarat shadow the outcome in HP?

Every state has its own relevance. People in Himachal will be more interested in their own results and same goes for Gujarat. But these poll results will certainly have an impact on the national politics. We are going to win both the states and the existence of UPA government will be further threatened.

What are your thoughts on Modi's comments on Sunanda Pushkar while campaigning in Himachal Pradesh?

Anybody coming to my state can make any comment. That is freedom of speech. I don't comment on others speeches and what they speak. Whatever Modi speaks, people create controversies out of that. There is a particular section of people who always find some fault about him.
