Three times MLA from Theog constituency, Rakesh Verma has intensified his campaign for the November 4th assembly poll. However, inclusion of Narkanda, Kumarsain and Kotgarh with Theog segment has changed all political calculations, now Rakesh Verma is soliciting support from the newly added regions and hoping to gain electors favor against Congress stalwart Vidya Stokes.

This time Theog is a battlefield of braves as Congress, CPM and NCP has fielded their veterans and top honchos from the constituency and Rakesh Verma, who is serving Theog for last two decades, has made it more intriguing and intense.
