Newly elected Rajya Sabha MP Viplove Thakur was given the responsibility of Dehra, Jaswan-Pragpur and Jawalamukhi assembly constituency, whereas, senior party leader Harshwardhan Chauhan, Sunder Thakur and Sujan Singh Pathania will look after Fatehpur, Jawali, Nurpur, Indora and Shahpur constituencies.

Biru Ram Kishor Bilaspur district and Thakur Singh bharmouri and Vinod Sultanpuri were given responsibility of Chamba district.

Sukhu said that Congress hasn’t fixed any number for the rally, but with the size of team to organise the rally, it’s evident that state Congress wanted to give a strong answer to the BJP’s Sujanpur rally, which was reportedly attended by over a lakh people of the state.

Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh has already claimed to win all four seats in the state and from past six months, he’s rigorously touring the state and despite fiscal deficit, he is inaugurating one after another developmental projects across the state.
