"What is all this happening? Himachal Pradesh is known as Dev Bhumi. Leave it as Himachal and do'nt make it Punjab or Bihar. You should be ashamed of your behaviour and mind your language. You (Congress) have lost all elections as even could not win a single booth in the Lok Sabha poll.Talk sense in the House and conduct yourself with decency," he said.
