Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said that chief minister, Virbhadra Singh, will be the Congress’ chief ministerial candidate for the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections. He said that Singh will “become the CM of Himachal Pradesh for the seventh time.”
“Virbhadra Singh ji has done tremendous development in Himachal Pradesh as six-time chief minister. He will be CM for seventh time. This will have full backing of the party” he said, while addressing a rally in Mandi district.
The Congress scion added that the people of Himachal should compare the five years of Virbhadra’s government with the BJP government in Gujarat for the same period. “China gives jobs to 50,000 youth and Modi government 450 youths per day,” Rahul claimed.
The Assembly elections will likely be held before the end of the year.
