Congress Releases First List of 59 Candidates For Himachal Pradesh Assembly Elections


Despite any reservations arising from the pending corruption CBI and ED cases against Singh, the move, a leader says, "is evident acknowledgement of the fact that Virbhadra Singh is still the tallest and most popular leader in the Congress".

BJP's Dhumal has swapped his present Hamirpur seat, the pocket borough of the BJP, with party legislator Narendra Thakur, who will be the party candidate from the seat. While the polling will be held on November 09, counting of votes will be done on December 18.

Chief minister Virbhadra Singh who had announced to contest elections from Theog two days ago is once again reconsidering his decision and weighing his options from Arki in Solan district.

Himachal Lokhit Pary secured 1 seats while Independents won 5 seats in the 2012 assembly polls. The party has dropped from the list four sitting MLAs -Gobind Ram Sharma from Arki, Rikhi Ram Kaundal from Jhandutta, B K Chauhan from Chamba and Anil Dhiman, who won the bypoll to the Bhoranj seat in April 2017.

Asked about the presence of a "Modi wave" in the state, chief minister said that when the "Modi wave is not working in Gujarat..." Congress rebel Pramod Sharma, who too had joined the BJP, has been fielded from Shimla (Rural).

Late Ayurveda Minister Karan Singh's son, Aditya Vikram, is in the race from Banjar constituency. This is because Union minister and Rajya Sabha MP J.P. Nadda, Dhumal's potential rival for the CM's chair, does not even feature on the list of candidates.
