Himachal CM files nomination from Arki

Himachal CM files nomination from Arki”

Singh filed an affidavit on Friday mentioning his movable and immovable assets along with nomination papers from the Arki assembly constituency in Solan district for the November 9 state polls.

The battle lines are nearly drawn for the November 9 Himachal Pradesh Assembly election.

Congress has released a list of 59 candidates.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s former two-time Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal, who is also going to contest from a new seat Sujanpur, will file his papers on October 23, the party said. The Congress is yet to announce candidates for nine seats and the uncertainty over whether Vikramaditya, 28, will contest is expected to be resolved soon. Former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal will contest from Sujanpur.

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.

"Gandhi has approved the name of Virbhadra Singh as the chairman of the campaign committee for the assembly elections in the state", a Congress statement said.

Virbhadra Singh's critics point out that in the only state that the Congress has won recently, Punjab, the party's Captain Amrinder Singh insisted on fielding only one person from a family, denying ticket to Navjot Singh Sindhu's wife since the cricketer-turned-politician was also contesting.

Rana in 2012 won the assembly elections from this seat as an Independent and later joined the Congress.

The BJP has already declared candidates for all the 68 Assembly seats.

The Congress has fielded all its senior state leaders for the election.

Other senior leaders including AICC secretary Asha Kumari, Kaul Singh Thakur, G S Bali, Mukesh Agnihotri and Gangu Ram Musafir will contest from Dalhousie, Darang, Nagrota, Haroli and Pachchad, respectively, notes NDTV in its report. But that will give fresh ammunition to the BJP, which has been attacking the Congress for choosing "Vanshwad (dynastic)" politics over "Vikaswad (developmental)" politics.
