During a District Congress Committee Sammelan at Mandi, Prakash Chaudhari had announced from the stage that if the party wanted to win again, it should give free hand to the Chief Minister. He did not even stop here and said the Congress was synonymous with Virbhadra (Himachal Main Congress ka Dusra naam Virbhadra hai).

The minister said during the Congress Legislature Party meeting in Shimla, a majority of the MLAs had expressed solidarity with the Chief Minister and said they would not contest if the Chief Minister did not participate in electoral politics.Infighting within the Congress was seen at many places where the Chief Minister was on target, not from the BJP but from his own party men.

According to political analysts, it will be interesting to see the result in the coming days whether the Congress will be able to overcome the differences or not, which will have a long-lasting impact on the Congress prospects during the election.
